Bicycle Safety Tips for Summer

The Guelph Police Service would like to remind everyone that bicycles are legally considered "vehicles" on Ontario’s roadways. That
means bicyclists must obey the rules of the road like drivers of any other vehicle and must be treated as equal users by all other vehicles.
The best way to avoid accidents is to be prepared and be aware of other vehicles around you.
Avoid common bicyclist errors and common motorist errors, committed around bicyclists.

Here are some safety tips for biking:

Fall Driving Tips

“Fall Driving” Tips

• STEER CLEAR OF WET LEAVES - Wet leaves are
slippery and reduce traction. Treat wet leaves the same way
as you would for icy road surfaces.
• MAKE ADJUSTMENTS FOR THE LIGHT – A shorter days
means less light and makes it more difficult to see
pedestrians, cyclists, and children playing in the late
afternoon.
• WATCH FOR FROST - Keep a windshield scraper and
small broom in your car to keep windows clean. Frost
covered roads and sidewalks are very slippery. Always
