Walking and bicycle safety starts with all of us
April 3, 2017 (MINNEAPOLIS) This time of year, more people are taking to our sidewalks, streets and trails on foot and bicycle. Whether you walk, bike, drive a car or do some of each, safer streets start with all of us. People who walk, bike and drive motor vehicles are equally responsible for safety.
When you drive, remember to slow down and look for bicyclists and pedestrians, especially when turning. Stop for crossing pedestrians at marked crosswalks and at all intersections without marked crosswalks or stop lights. This is Minnesota law.
When you walk, cross at intersections and look both ways before crossing the street.
When you bike, remember to follow traffic laws and ride predictably.
No matter how you get around, thank you for making our streets safer.
Riding a bike is one of the most popular ways to get around Minneapolis. This video in English, Spanish, Somali and Hmong explains to drivers and bicyclists what the different bike markings on the road mean.
