This program is designed to teach drivers best practices for sharing the road with people who ride bicycles. This course will benefit all drivers, from fleet drivers to the general public.
The 1.5 hour, interactive class covers the following topics:- Common causes of crashes between motorists and bicyclists and how to avoid them.- Legal and illegal behavior for motorists and bicyclists.- How to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure while driving a motor vehicle.- Why sharing the road is the safest option for both motorists and bicyclists.- What laws and etiquette we teach bicyclists.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Bicycle-Friendly Driver certificate, a sticker to display on their vehicle, and the option to pledge to be a Bicycle-Friendly Driver.
