Safe Driving Tips | Drivers
Total Build reminds all drivers to share the road and watch out for cyclists.
- Please be aware of cyclists. Scan in all directions, and carefully check mirrors and blind spots for cyclists.
- When crossing a bike lane to turn right or to pull to the side of the road, signal well in advance and yield to cyclists.
- Leave 1 metre of space between your vehicle and cyclists at all times.
- If there is no shoulder, or it is an unsafe shoulder, a cyclist will have to ride to the left of the white line.
Safe Riding Tips | Cyclists
- Wear a helmut.
- Plan your route before you set off, give yourself plenty of time choose bike lanes and paths whenever possible.
- Be aware of what’s going on around you at all times and keep an eye on the road well ahead for hazards.
- Use bike lanes when available and shoulders where possible.
- When riding on shared paths, ride on the right hand side to ensure the safety of all cyclists and pedestrians.
- Be visible – ensure other road users can see you. Some vehicles have blind spots and cannot see you.
- Be predictable – ensure other road users know where you are going.
- Communicate | Use Signals – ensure other road users know what you are doing, or what you want to do.
