Drivers: Share the route

People on bicycles have the same rights and responsibilities as people behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Yield to bicyclists as you would motorists and don't underestimate your speed.

This will help avoid turning in front of a cyclist who is traveling on the road or sidewalk, often at an intersection or driveway.

In parking lots, at stop signs, when parking, look around for other vehicles, including bicycles.

Drivers turning right on red should look to the right and behind to avoid colliding with a bicyclist approaching from the rear right.

Come to a complete stop and look left, right, left, and behind before turning right on red.

Obey the speed limit, slow down based on road conditions, and drive defensively to avoid hitting a cyclist.

Give space to cyclists. Don't go too close. Pass bicyclists as you would any other vehicle, when it is safe to move into an adjacent lane.
