We'd like to add a page (or more) to the site with information for motorists on how to share the road with people on bikes. What would your top suggestions be? Think of things car drivers do that annoy you or put you at risk, and then turn it into a positive recommendation for how to act. Explanations of why drivers should do what you suggest are welcome, too, of course, as are pithy slogans and headlines we could use. For instance:
- Always check for people on bikes behind you before you open your car door into traffic. "Getting doored" is one of the most feared crash risks for cyclists. Hint: get in the habit of opening your door with your right hand: it'll force you to shoulder-check.
- We know bicycles are scary, and you want to leave them behind you fast as possible. But speeding around cyclists is dangerous. Even if you slow down to 30 kmh, you'll pass that cyclist in no time.
