AAA and Bicycle Alliance of Washington Encourage All to "Share the Road"
By Jennifer Cook

Spring is in the air and communities across the state are gearing up to celebrate National Bike Month in May. Whether you find yourself reaching for your car keys or a bike helmet, AAA and the Bicycle Alliance of Washington encourage all roadway users to show mutual respect for one another.

"When it comes to safety, education is key for all roadway users," said Jennifer Cook, senior manager of Corporate Communications, AAA Washington. "We need to reinforce the message that people who drive, bike and walk have a joint responsibility to share the road with each other."

To help us all get to our destinations safely, AAA and the Bicycle Alliance of Washington offer the following tips:

Follow the Rules of the Road:

Whether driving a car, riding a bike or walking, make sure your actions are legal, predictable, visible and courteous to others on the road. Follow signals and signs.

Plan Ahead:

Always be aware of traffic around you and leave enough room between you and others on the road to respond safely.

Be Attentive:

Avoid all distractions while riding or driving, including using your cell phone.
