Eight "Rules of the Road" for bike safety

Published in 2011

* Bicyclists may ride on all Minnesota roads, except where restricted - such as interstates.

* Bicyclists should ride on the road, and must ride in the same direction as traffic.

* Motorists must at all times maintain a three-foot clearance when passing a bicyclist.

* Bicyclists must obey all traffic control signs and signals, just as motorists.

* Motorists and bicyclists must yield the right of way to each other.

* Bicyclists must signal their turns and should ride in a predictable manner.

* Bicyclists must use a headlight and rear reflectors when it’s dark.

* Bicyclists should always wear helmets and bright reflective gear.

DPS reports each that year an average of eight bicyclists are killed and more than 950 are injured in crashes with vehicles. Most bicycle crashes occur during afternoon rush hours. People under age 25 represent more than half of all bicyclists injured annually.
