Safe Streets Start With You
It doesn’t matter where you’re going or what transportation option you choose, as long as you get to your destination safely. We are safest when everyone does their part to follow the rules of the road by being a PAL (predictable, alert, and lawful).
Ride predictably so others can see you and predict your movements. Use hand signals to indicate turns.
Scan the route ahead for traffic, opening car doors, people walking, and obstacles on the road surface.
Obey all traffic signals, signs, and lane markings.
