Cycling safety

How to stay safe, avoid collisions and protect yourself while cycling.


Many rules that apply to driving a vehicle apply to riding a bike safely. Drinking alcohol before riding and being distracted while riding come with steep fines and create dangerous situations for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. Cycling safety is also about preparing for your trip by knowing where bike lanes are on your route and ensuring you have all the proper equipment for riding safely in different types of weather and different times of the day, such as reflective gear and lights for riding at night.
