Tips for Sharing the Road with Bicyclists

If you encounter a bicyclist on your daily commute, it's your responsibility to maneuver around them safely. We want you to drive safely no matter where your adventures take you, so here are some important safety tips to keep in mind when you approach a bicyclist.

One place where vehicle and bike accidents often occur is at a crosswalk. Bicyclists can be difficult to see out of your peripheral vision. You should always come to a full stop and look both ways. You need to keep an eye out for both pedestrians and bicyclists. If you're driving towards bicyclists, it's important that you slow down and wait for the opportunity to pass. There should be three feet of open space between your vehicle and the bike as you go around them.
