Share the Road.

Let’s share the road safely. Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are depending on you to be the best version of yourself on the road. We’re all going places so let’s look out for one another and share the road, share the responsibility.

Drivers

  • Follow the speed limit.
  • Slow down at intersections.
  • Give pedestrians a brake at crosswalks and unmarked corners.
  • Respect bicyclists. California law requires drivers to provide at least three feet of space between a vehicle and bicycle when passing.
  • If there is not enough room to pass a bicyclist, be patient and wait until it’s safe.

Pedestrians

  • Be predictable. Use crosswalks when available.
  • Be aware of approaching vehicles and practice due care.
  • Be visible. Make it easier for drivers to see you – wear light colors, reflective material and carry a flashlight.
  • Be extra careful crossing at night when it is harder to see or when crossing busier streets with more lanes and higher speed limits.

Bicyclists

  • Use hand signals.
  • Always use lights at night – at least front white light and rear red reflector – and wear a helmet.
  • Bicyclists must travel in the same direction of traffic and have the same requirements as any slow-moving vehicle.
  • Use the bike lane, if available, unless making a left turn, passing, or approaching a place where a right turn is allowed.
  • Stop for pedestrians. Bicyclists must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians within marked crosswalks or within unmarked crosswalks at intersections.
