Safety and Education
Motorists, cyclists, and walkers have important responsibilities when traveling within public rights of way. Before you head out, check out these important walking and biking safety tips.
Rules of the Road
Bicycles on the roadway are, by law, vehicles with the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicles. Here are some suggested rules to follow while on the road:
Follow the Law.
Obey traffic signals and stop signs. Ride with traffic and use the rightmost lane heading the direction you are going.
Make your intentions clear to everyone on the road. Signal turns, and check behind you well before turning or changing lanes.
Share the Road.
Learn how to avoid accidents and make roadways, intersections and crosswalks safer for all users.
Ride where people can see you and wear bright clothing. Use a front white light and a rear red light and reflectors.
Anticipate what drivers, pedestrians and other people on bikes will do next. Look out for debris, potholes, and other road hazards.
Check that your tires have sufficient air, brakes are working, and chain runs smoothly.
As you're out and about, always keep safety in mind.
