Bike To Work Day Safety – For Drivers

Tomorrow is the culmination of Bike to Work Week, the last day of the week and the most likely to see its highest participation as it is the official Bike to Work Day and also as a Friday likely has more casual and bike friendly dress codes for workers. Seeing as there will be such a large number of riders, it is important for drivers to be aware and respect the cyclist. Bikes, after all, are vehicles on the road just as cars, motorcycles, and scooters. A bicycle is defined by Wisconsin law as a “vehicle propelled by the feet acting upon pedals and having wheels any two of which are not less than 14 inches in diameter.”

Bicycles must obey the rules of the road, but in return other vehicles should treat them as such as well. When bicycles are treated otherwise, and drivers don’t respect their space, accidents are more likely to happen.
