Warm weather brings out all types of road users – motorcyclists, bicyclists, more pedestrians, and road maintenance vehicles and crews.
Prepare To Share The Road
- Scan for motorcyclists and cyclists at intersections
- Check your blind spots when turning, passing or merging.
- Scan your crosswalk– if the yellow pedestrian-activated traffic light is flashing, slow to 30 km/h and yield to pedestrians wanting to cross the street.
- Now that road repair season is about to begin, use extra caution – obey the flag person’s signal, and be prepared to slow down and/or stop when entering work zones.
Tip: If avoiding a pothole is not possible, you should brake just before impact.
