What to Do When Sharing the Road With Bicyclists

The warmer weather brings everyone out of the house. Some people like to ride their bicycles in order to enjoy the nice weather. If you have these riders traveling down the road with you in your vehicle, there are some safety rules you should follow in order to keep everyone out of harm's way.

  • Children on bikes create a dangerous scenario. You would hope that children have been schooled on the rules of the road, but you need to be extra cautious in this case. Make sure you approach intersections slowly. If you see a child on the road, keep a good amount of distance between you and their bike.
  • You have to yield to bicyclists on the road. They have the right to ride through intersections and along the road just like you do. They should be using hand signals as needed.
