The following tips are some safety guidelines while using these facilities.

 

 

 

Pedestrian Safety Tips

Follow the Rules of the Road

  • Pedestrians should use sidewalks when available. If there are not any sidewalks available, pedestrians should walk/run against traffic on the side of the road.
  • Pedestrians should use marked and unmarked crosswalks when crossing the street.

Be Visible

  • Walk/Run where drivers can see you.
  • Wear bright colored clothing during the day and light-colored or reflective clothing at night.

Be Alert

  • Be extra alert at intersections: watch for turning vehicles
  • Watch for vehicles exiting and entering driveways and parking lots.
  • Make eye contact with drivers. Assume they do not see you.
  • Avoid Road Hazards. Watch for storm drain grates, slippery manhole covers, oily pavement, gravel and ice.
  • Don't get distracted.
  • Be aware of traffic around you and be prepared to take evasive action.

Bicycle Safety Tips

Follow the Rules of the Road

  • Ride with traffic and obey all regulatory signs and traffic signals. By law, bicyclists are required to ride in the same direction as automobile traffic.
  • Act like a car and obey the same laws as motorists.
  • Use the rightmost lane that heads in the direction that you are traveling.
  • When on sidewalks, stay under 10 mph and be careful of pedestrians and while crossing streets. Pedestrians have the right of way on all city sidewalks.

Be Predictable

  • Use hand and arm signals to indicate your intention to stop, merge or turn. Signal as a courtesy and for safety as required by law.
  • Whenever possible, ride in a straight line, to the right of traffic, at about a car doors width away from parked cars.

Be Visible

  • Ride where drivers can see you.
  • Wear bright colored clothing during the day and light-colored or reflective clothing at night.
  • Always use a strong headlight and tail light and good reflectors when riding at night, as required by law.

Be Alert

  • Be extra alert at intersections - watch for turning vehicles and vehicles exiting driveways.
  • Make eye contact with drivers. Assume they do not see you.
  • Avoid Road Hazards. Watch for storm drain grates, slippery manhole covers, oily pavement, gravel and ice. Cross railroad tracks at right angles.
  • Don't get distracted - don't listen to music or talk on the phone while riding.
  • Be aware of traffic around you and be prepared to take evasive action.
  • Learn braking and turning techniques to avoid crashes.

Ride with proper equipment

  • Wear a Helmet- Helmets reduce the risk of serious injury by 85%.
  • Make sure that the helmet fits on top of your head, not tipped back or forward.
  • After a crash or any impact that affects your helmet, visible or not, replace it immediately.
  • Bikes must be equipped with working brakes.
  • Check your brakes and wheels. Make sure the wheels are properly secured.
  • Purchase the best locking system you can afford. Lock the frame and front wheel to a fixed object.
