Share the Road

Posted on Fri, Apr 17, 2009 at 2:41 PM

To every driver and every pedestrian in the HRM: it's warm out now, so that means it's time to share the road with us cyclists. Here are some tips: 1. I am a vehicle. Don't step off the curb and onto the road in front of me. I still move fast and I can still hurt you if I hit you. And don't call me a bitch when I have the right of way. 2. I am a vehicle. That means I can be in the middle of the road at intersections when I want to turn. Don't honk at me to get out of the way. See my arm outstretched like that? It means I'm turning left. 3. I am a vehicle. So if I'm at an intersection with a crosswalk or 4-way stop, I am waiting for you to go 'cause you have the right of way. Don't wave me by. Thanks--but you're fucking up traffic by not obeying basic traffic laws.
