We here at Durrett Motor Company want you to be safe while you're out on the road, and part of being safe is knowing how to share the road with bicyclists. Listed below are the best ways to drive safely when it comes to sharing the road with bicyclists and pedestrians:

  • Drive cautiously while watching for bicyclists, pedestrians, etc. Be mindful of the speed limit.
  • Before making a turn, look for bikes or pedestrians and stop completely before making a right turn at a red light.
  • Give a 3-foot distance at least when you're passing a bicyclist.
  • Bikes are allowed use of the entire lane if there is not enough room for a bike and a vehicle side-by-side, so only pass or change lanes when it is safe.
  • Don't drive distracted.
