Note: It's National Bicycle Safety Month! Bicyclists have the same rights and duties as drivers. Obey traffic signals and stop signs. Ride the same direction as motor vehicle traffic and the right most lane. Signal your turns and check behind you well before turning or changing lanes. Motorists need to be alert as they approach a bicyclist and be prepared should they not follow safe biking practices.
