The development of bicycle safety educational materials is a critical component to ensuring that both drivers and cyclists understand how to use and interact with different types of infrastructure in a safe manner.

This bicycle safety campaign aims to help educate both drivers and cyclists on how to properly use bike boxes, shared lanes and how to make right turns across bike lanes.

Diagram of how to make a proper right turn and explanation on how to do it: 1. Cars and bicycles, be aware of each other at intersections. 2. Right-turning cars, when the line is solid, yield to bicycles and pedestrians and turn when safe.

Right Turn: Check It.

  1. Cars and bicycles, be aware of each other at intersections.
  2. Right-turning cars, when the line is solid, yield to bicycles and pedestrians and turn when safe.
