Driving Safely With Cyclists

Driving Safely With Cyclists | LTrent Driving School & Lessons

If you live in a large Australian city, you will inevitably share the road with cyclists – and people who are riding a bicycle have just as much right to the road as people who are driving cars. 

In fact, while some Australian drivers may think that bicycle users must stay on shared paths, sidewalks or in bike lanes, this is not true. They have full rights to use an entire lane of the road. 

You must share the road and follow appropriate road safety rules when driving around cyclists – including checking blind spots, safely passing bicycle riders, and avoiding bike lanes. To learn more about how to drive safely and how drivers and cyclists can share the road, read on and get some top tips from LTrent Driving School.
