Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety
Welcome to the program section for non-motorized roadway users, otherwise known as bicyclists and pedestrians.
As you might expect, when a crash occurs between a vehicle and a bike, it’s the cyclist who is most likely to be injured. In this section, you’ll learn bicycle safety tips and rules of the road, from properly fitting your helmet to driving defensively and predictably. Find out what you can do to prevent bicycle injuries and deaths and remember...a large percentage of crashes can be avoided if motorists and cyclists follow the rules of the road and watch out for each other.
At some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian, and unfortunately pedestrian fatalities remain high. GOHS raises awareness of the dangers to pedestrians by providing safety tips, educational materials and other resources. Find out how to protect yourself and your loved ones when walking, and learn how you can help us prevent pedestrian injuries and deaths.
