Share the Road is a public safety campaign to increase motorists’ and bicyclists’ awareness of shared responsibility for road safety. Share the road signs alert motorists and cyclists to exercise additional caution.
Be respectful and courteous. Look out for cyclists on the road, slow down and only pass when it’s safe to pass. Ensure you leave one metre (three feet) when passing a cyclist.
Cyclists must follow all traffic laws. Just like drivers, cyclists need to look for potential dangers on the road including drivers who may be distracted.
