Safe Road Sharing with Bike Riders

Roads aren’t just for cars and trucks. Bicycles often share roadways, which means you need to pay extra attention to who's sharing your traveling spaces and do your part to keep things safe.

Three feet is a good amount of space to leave when passing cyclists, but check your state law for local requirements. Sometimes the road doesn't allow that much extra space, so in those cases, cyclists can use the entire lane. If you need to pass the bike ride, wait until it's safe to do so, meaning there are no other vehicles in the lane used for passing. Finally, stay alert so that you're always aware of other people using the road.

One way to stay safer on the road is with a newer vehicle that has the latest safety features. Stop by Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield to take a test drive.
