Whether we’re traveling on four wheels or 16; two feet or two wheels, we all have something in common: we are on this road together.  Sadly, the toll of sharing the road together has cost too much, and lost lives is a price too dear for just getting from here to there.  Here’s a review of the rules of the road whether you’re walking, bicycling, motorcycling – or driving around pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles or large trucks.  The good news is that you’re in control and have a choice – to choose safety for life!

Pedestrian Safety – Tips for Pedestrians and Sharing the Road with Pedestrians Every time you get out of your vehicle, you become a pedestrian too.  Share the road with pedestrians.

Motorcycles – Tips for motorcyclists and Sharing the Roads with Motorcyclists

Commercial Vehicles - Sometimes roadway bullies are not the biggest on the block, drive cautiously around large vehicles.  Commercial truck drivers will return the favor.
