It’s a busy world out there, and we’re all in this together.

The road is shared with bicyclists, drivers, and pedestrians. Some walk, some bike, and many of us drive. Letʼs be the best versions of ourselves on the road, especially if we are in the car. Bicyclists and pedestrians need drivers to be safe to keep them safe. And drivers need those around them to exercise care. Share the road. Share the responsibility. Letʼs look out for one another. 

Drivers, Share the Road.

  • Follow the speed limit.
  • Slow down at intersections.
  • Give pedestrians a brake at crosswalks and unmarked corners. Be prepared to stop and let them cross.
  • Be extra careful in less-than-ideal driving conditions such as in the dark, foggy or rainy weather.
  • Respect bicyclists. Give at least three to five feet of space when passing a bike. California law requires drivers to provide at least three feet of space between a vehicle and bicycle.
  • If there is not enough room to pass a bicyclist, be patient and wait until it’s safe.
