Be Smart.  Share the Road with bicycles.

Bicyclists have the right to share the road and travel in the same direction as motor vehicles. They are often difficult to notice in traffic and have little protection from a traffic crash. Check your vehicle's "blind spots" before you make a turn, parallel park, open a door or leave a curb. Don't rely only on your rearview mirrors — turn your head to look for bicyclists, skaters and scooter operators who maybe alongside or approaching.
