Share the Road!


 Warmer weather (yes, it will get here...) attracts different types of roadway users, including motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are vulnerable road users—they do not have the protection of a car or truck, and collisions almost always result in injury. 
 
If you expect to see motorcycles, you are more likely to detect them. Often, we filter out things we don't expect to see. Look for motorcycles, especially at intersections. 
 
Motorcycles are much lighter than other vehicles and can stop in much shorter distances. This means that when you are following a motorcycle, you should leave more distance. If the rider has to make an emergency stop, the bike will stop in a much shorter distance than your rig. 
 
When you see a motorcycle approaching, realize that it's easy to misjudge the speed because the size of the motorcycle and the fact that it is coming towards you makes it difficult to estimate speed. 
 
Pedestrians are just as vulnerable as motorcyclists and bicyclists. Things to remember as a professional driver:

  • You can encounter pedestrians anytime and anywhere – even in places where they are not supposed to be found. Pedestrians can be very hard to see, especially in bad weather or at night. You must keep a lookout and slow down if you can't see clearly. 
  • Stop for pedestrians who are in a crosswalk, even if it is not marked. When you stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk, stop well back so that drivers in the other lanes can also see the pedestrian in time to stop.
  • Cars stopped in the street may be stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross. Do not pass if there is any doubt.
  • Don't assume that pedestrians see you or that they will act predictably. They may be physically or mentally impaired – or drunk.
  • When you are turning, you often will have to wait for a "gap" in traffic. Beware that while you are watching for that "gap,” pedestrians may have moved into your intended path.
  • Be especially attentive around schools and areas where children are active. Drive like you would want other people to drive in front of your own home.
