September 9th – 15th Virginia Bicyclist and Pedestrian Awareness Week

SHARE THE ROAD

Motorists have a responsibility to share the road with those who enjoy biking and walking along Virginia’s roadways.

When you pass a bicyclists slow down and allow at least 2 feet between the bike and the vehicle.

Look for hand signals a bicyclist may use to signal a turn. When approaching a crosswalk, stop for pedestrians.

Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists and should ride with traffic.

Bicyclists should obey all Virginia traffic laws, use flashing lights, and wear bright clothing.

Bicyclists should yield to pedestrians.

If you’re out walking, move against traffic and use sidewalks when possible.
