Traffic Principles To Ride By

1. Ride on the right  

  • Always ride with the flow of traffic    
  • Do not ride on the sidewalk    
  • Allow yourself room to maneuver around roadway hazards

    2. Yield to traffic in busier lanes    
  • Roads with higher traffic volumes should be given right-of-way    
  • Always use signals to indicate your intentions to switch lanes    
  • Look behind you to indicate your desire to move and to make sure that you can 

    3. Yield to traffic in destination lane    
  • Traffic in your destination lane has the right of way    
  • Making eye contact with drivers lets them know that you see them    
  • Signal and make your lane change early, before you need to 

    4. Directional positioning    
  • Position yourself in the right-most lane that goes in the direction of your destination    
  • Ride in the right third of the lane    
  • Avoid being overtaken in narrow-lane situations by riding in the right third of the lane 

    5. Speed positioning    
  • Position yourself relative to the speed of other traffic    
  • Leftmost lane is for fastest moving traffic, rightmost for slower traffic    
  • Yield to faster moving vehicles by staying to the right in the lane
