Police remind cyclists to obey road rules
To avoid being involved in a bicycle-vehicle accident you should obey the “rules of the road.”
Highway Traffic Act laws and fines apply to cyclists the same as they do to vehicles. Here are a few cycling tips:
• Travel with the flow of traffic and signal your intention with hand signals.
• At night, your bicycle should be equipped with a light and you should wear reflective clothing.
• If travelling in a group, remember single file is the safest way.
• Always protect your head — wear a safety helmet.
To report road hazards or inquire about traffic matters, contact the Brandon Police Service traffic section at 204-729-2345.
