Cyclists & Motorists Awareness
Bicycling is a popular means of exercise and is becoming a preferred method of transportation, especially this time of year. With more bicycles on the road, it is important for both bicyclists and motorists to practice defensive driving. Motorists need to be cautious when opening car doors, as you might not be expecting a cyclists to ride by. Cyclists need to ride to the left, and far enough to the left that you won't run into any door that opens unexpectedly. Better to be visible to all motorists and passengers than ride too close to parking cars and get hit. Courtesy and safety ride well together. Look before you leap and ride where you're best seen.
