Tips To Better Share The Road

Driving can be dangerous if you don't have the proper knowledge while out on the road. That is why our team at New Way Auto of Jefferson want to be sure that you know all about various tips to share the road. These tips are especially helpful for when you encounter bicyclists while driving.

First, it is important to leave at least three feet between your car and the cyclist when passing. This allows both you to ensure you are clear of the bicycle and gives the cyclist a level of comfort that they are safe. Additionally, although it is little known, you should be aware that cyclists have equal rights to the full driving lane as a car if there is not a designated bike lane or plenty of room in the shoulder. This means that drivers must be respectful of their space and only pass on their left when it is safe to do so.
