Basic Safety Rules For The Road

1. Ride on the right 

  • Always ride in the same direction as traffic          
  • Use the lane furthest to the right that heads in the direction that you are traveling           
  • Slower moving cyclists and motorists stay to the right 

    2. On the road  
  • The same laws that apply to motorists apply to cyclists           
  • Obey all traffic control devices, such as stop signs, lights, and lane markings           
  • Always use hand signals to indicate your intention to stop or turn 

    3. Always wear a properly fitting helmet    
  • Ensure that the helmet fits snugly and sits squarely on top of the head, not tipped back           
  • Always wear a helmet while riding a bike, no matter how short the trip           
  • After a crash or any impact that affects your helmet, whether damage is visible or not, replace it immediately 

    4. Ride predictably  
  • Ride in a straight line and don't swerve in the road or between parked cars           
  • Check for oncoming traffic before entering any street or intersection           
  • Anticipate hazards and adjust your position in traffic accordingly 

    5. Be visible  
  • Wear brightly colored clothing           
  • At night, use a white front light, red rear light and reflector and reflective tape or clothing           
  • Make eye contact with motorists to let them know you are there
