[ARCHIVED] Bike To School Safety Tips

School Bus

Traffic / Bike Safety Tips 


Biking

  • Wear a helmet. Helmets dramatically reduce the risk of serious head injuries.
  • Always use lights at night – at least, a white front light and a red rear reflector.
  • The same rules that apply to drivers apply to you.
  • Use the bike lane if one is available unless turning or passing. 
  • Stop for pedestrians.  

  

E-Bike Safety Tips

  •  Wear a helmet: Protect yourself by always wearing a well-fitted helmet. It could save your life.
  •  Obey all traffic laws: E-bikes are subject to the same traffic laws as regular bikes. Stop at traffic lights and stop signs. Stay on bike paths and in bike lanes, where possible. Wear a helmet. Don’t carry passengers on your electric bike, unless your e-bike has a specific seat for a passenger.
  •  Be aware of speed: Get comfortable with the differences in speed settings. Remember how fast you are going, and brake earlier than you would on a standard bike.
  •  Limit distractions: Mobile phones are potential distractions while riding a bike. Try not to let anything take your attention away.
  •  Wear bright clothing or helmets: Use your lights and get reflectors when driving at dusk or in the dark. Ride on the proper side of the road, with traffic, not against it.
  • Conduct regular maintenance checks : Keep your tires property inflated. Get your bike serviced every 6 to 12 months. Check your brakes.

 

Be a defensive rider: Be aware of other riders and vehicles. Never assume someone sees you. Maintain eye contact with drivers at intersections. Use your turn signals or hand signs.
