Work zones are a sign to slow down! 🚧

When you see construction workers in orange vests, along with cones and orange barriers laid out, that is your sign to drive cautiously to help create a safer road environment!

It’s a fact: drivers share the road.

Bicycle riders have the same rights and responsibilities as people behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Here are five safety tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association () for drivers when bicycle riders are present:

• Yield to bicyclists as you would motorists, and do not underestimate their speed.
• In parking lots, at stop signs, when backing up, or when parking, search your surroundings for other vehicles, including bicycles.
• Drivers turning right on red should look to the right and behind to avoid hitting a bicyclist approaching from the right rear.
• Obey the speed limit, reduce speed for road conditions and drive defensively to avoid a crash with a cyclist.
• Give cyclists room. Do not pass too closely. Pass bicyclists as you would any other vehicle.
