Spring is Almost Here!--Bike Safety Tips

The following are some bicycle safety tips to follow for safe riding!

Always wear a helmet

Obey all traffic controls

Ride your bicycle near the right-hand edge of the road

Never carry another person on your bicycle

Always use hand signals when turning or stopping

Look out for cars at cross street, driveways, and parking places

Be careful when checking traffic and don't swerve when looking over your shoulder

Give pedestrians the right-of-way

Keep your bicycle in good condition

Always ride carefully

Remember a bicycle is a vehicle. Bicyclists share a complex traffic environment with other larger forms of transportation. Youngsters under age nine lack the physical and mental development to interact safely in that environment.
