National Bicycle Safety Awareness Month

National Bicycle Safety Awareness Month

Earlier in the month we talked about the month of May being National Motorcycle Awareness Month. May is also National Bicycle Safety month as well.

 No matter what kind of bike you ride, or if you are a driver of a truck or car, we all have to look out for one another. Traffic is a shared responsibility. People get around in a variety of ways, including bikes and walking, so it’s important that we are aware of everyone and do our part to help keep everyone safe.

Bicycle safety remains a concern for our communities. By law, bicycles on the roadway are vehicles with the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicles.

Bicyclists are much more vulnerable than motorists, it is important to understand how to share the road with these riders:

  • Stay Aware and actively look for cyclists.
  • Be patient.
  • Look for cyclists when turning and give them plenty of space.
  • Always yield the right of way to a bicyclist.

Distracted driving is on the rise. Distractions during driving could mean the difference between seeing a bicycle or not.  Riders need to take all precautions as well. Bicycle riders should wear protective gear at all times and obey the rules of the road.

Let’s all work together to keep our roads safe for both cyclists and motorists!!!
