The presence of bicyclists on busy roads is something that Fremont motorists cannot ignore. Preparing yourself to drive in their presence is wise, and it will make the situation safer for both the motorists and the cyclists involved. Learning some prominent bicyclist hand signals will go a long way toward being a safer driver when sharing roads with them.

After learning these bicyclists’ hand signals, you will have greater awareness when they are about to turn, stop or change lanes. Additionally, avoiding the use of headphones and other electronics will help you remain even more alert in case you encounter a bicyclist.

Finally, Advantage Lincoln wants to warn our responsible local motorists to allow a generous amount of space in the even that you need to pass a bike. Only overtake a bicycle when it is safe to do so. This will help decrease the likelihood of swipes and collisions with vulnerable bicyclists.
