RIDING IN TRAFFIC

Trucks and buses have blind spots where the driver can’t see you, and they may need to swing wide or cut the corner when turning.
  • Ride to be seen and be predictable don’t swerve in and out of gaps.

  • Stay back if a truck or bus is turning, or may be about to turn.

  • Stop where the driver can see you.

  • In a queue, wait behind trucks and buses – it’s safer than trying to pass.

  • If in doubt, stay back and stay safe.

  • Choose safe routes.
