Safety Tips

 

  • Ride defensively.
  • When biking in urban areas, be respectful, cautious and law-abiding.

 

Obey road and traffic signs.

 

Ride on the right-hand side of the road, in the same direction of traffic.

Slow down when approaching pedestrians, children or animals.

Give right-of-way to pedestrians at all cross walks and pedestrian crossings.

Stay off the sidewalks. Sidewalks are for pedestrians.

Slow down at busy intersections and in heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Slow down and use your bell or horn when approaching pedestrians from behind or overtaking another cyclist.

Always overtake other cyclists on the left - never on the right.

 

At traffic lights or stop sign, avoid pulling alongside another vehicle. Stay out of the pedestrian cross-walk zone.

Make sure that you are clearly visible to all motorists as well as pedestrians and other cyclists.

 

  • Stay behind a vehicle and wait your turn.
  • Watch out for vehicles making a right hand turn ahead of you.

 

Signal your intentions clearly when turning, slowing down or stopping.

 

  • Occupy your lane when making left-hand or right-hand turns at a controlled intersection (traffic lights or stop sign).

 

When you wish to go left at a busy intersection, go through the intersection and stop at the opposite corner. Position yourself in the direction you wish to travel and wait for the lights to turn green.

 

  • Keep a safe distance from parked cars. Do not swerve in and around parked cars.
  • Look ahead to avoid pot holes, sewer covers and gratings, obstructions and debris.
  • Avoid sudden swerving while avoiding such obstructions.

 

Do not attempt to cross railway crossings when the barriers are down.

 

  • Ensure that both front and rear brakes are in good working order.
  • Ensure that your tires are inflated to the recommended pressure.

 

Always wear an approved bicycle helmet that is properly adjusted to fit snugly on your head.

 

  • Do not wear any audio earphones or headphones while riding.

 

Wear a highly visible fluorescent safety vest, particularly when riding at night.

 

  • Ensure that headlights and taillights are functioning when riding at night.

 

 

Safety is no accident!
