Basic Safety

Here are four basic tips for you:

Maintain control

The following are things you can do to maintain control of your vehicle, even in an emergency:

  • Ensure your vehicle is the right size and properly adjusted to fit you.
  • A properly-fitted vehicle is more comfortable and easier to control.
  • Before you begin, make sure that you can quickly stop, get off or accelerate.
  • Ensure you are riding in a safe lane.
  • Respect pedestrians.

Protect Yourself

Properly-fitted helmets provide protection from a potentially life-threatening head injury. By law, road traffic participants of any age must wear a helmet while riding on a public road.

Wear your helmet per manufacturer directions.

Be Visible and Alert

  • At night, we provide you with protective lights and fluorescent equipment.
  • Be prepared to stop for vehicles waiting at stop signs, in driveways, or parking spaces.
  • Be prepared to take evasive action relating to vehicles that have just passed you and may turn right.
  • Use hand signals before making turns or changing lanes to warn traffic around you.

Bonus tip for Bicycle Riders:

In case you must go on the road:

Ride in a Safe Lane Position

Ride in the same direction as traffic so you are more visible to drivers entering roads or changing lanes in the following scenarios:

  • Passing a vehicle or another bicycle.
  • Preparing to make a left turn at an intersection.
  • When a lane is too narrow for a bicycle
  • When approaching a right turn.
  • If the road is one-way with two or more lanes.
