Be aware of your surroundings and know that sharing the road with other bicyclists and motor vehicles is important to your safety. Be sure to ride defensively and prepare for the unexpected and plan alternate maneuver to avoid conflict. Rules alone do not always protect bicyclists from injury. So stay alert, make yourself visible and ride predictably. Our Practicing bicycle safety video gives you an idea of how to be safe riding around the UA campus.
As a vehicle: Signal your intentions in advance. Move to the left turning lane, and complete the turn when it is safe.
As a pedestrian: Ride to the far crosswalk and walk across the street.
