Safe Driving Tips | Drivers

  • Please be aware of cyclists.  Scan in all directions, and carefully check mirrors and blind spots for cyclists.
  • When turning right or pulling over on a bike lane, signal well in advance and yield to cyclists.
  • When crossing a bike lane to turn right or to pull to the side of the road, signal well in advance and yield to cyclists.
  • Always leave 1 metre of space between your vehicle and cyclists at all times.
  • If there is no shoulder, or it is an unsafe shoulder, a cyclist will have to ride to the left of the white line.
  • Stay Alert!  Keep your phone and other distractions out of sight.
  • Scan for cyclists before opening your door to prevent injury and fines.

Safe Riding Tips | Cyclists

  • Keep your bike tuned up and your helmut in check before the season starts.
  • Before you launch, plan your route to travel bike lanes and paths as much as possible and give yourself plenty of time.
  • Wear a helmut and reflective gear to help keep you visible in all weather and at all times of the day.
  • Be visible – ensure other road users can see you.   Some vehicles have blind spots and cannot see you.
  • Be aware of what’s going on around you at all times and keep an eye on the road well ahead for hazards.
  • Use bike lanes when available and shoulders where possible.
  • When riding on shared paths, ride on the right hand side to ensure the safety of all cyclists and pedestrians.
  • Be predictable – ensure other road users know where you are going.
  • Communicate | Use Signals  – ensure other road users know what you are doing, or what you want to do.
