Keeping Everyone Safe on the Road. Riding Safely with Bicyclists.

There's no need to panic when you see a bicycle sharing the road with your automobile. You can easily ensure that you both stay safe by following a few simple safety tips. It's important that you remember, bicyclists can ride on the road by law. They have every right to be there.

Make sure that you yield to a bicycle. Because they're allowed on the road, they don't have to stop for you. Watch for them to make hand signals to indicate where they'll be turning and such. You should accommodate accordingly. Also, watch out at intersections. Look over your shoulder to make sure that a bicyclist is coming up from behind when you're ready to make a turn.

Children tend to be careless when it comes to riding a bike on the road. Pay extra close attention to them, and leave plenty of space between you and them.
