Every summer, as the warmer weather draws people outside, you may notice more motorcycles and bicycles on the road with your vehicle. Please keep in mind that while you are in the safety of your own car, those on bikes face many dangers. Tips to keep everyone safe include:
- Look before you turn, checking blind spots often.
- Check the mirror! When backing out it is easy to miss smaller profile vehicles.
- Be patient, and do not pass a cyclist until you can safely do so.
- Have respect for all others you share the road with. The person under the helmet could be your family, your friend, or your neighbor.
