  2. Provide 3 feet of room when passing a bicycle
  3. Do not turn right in front of a bicycle
  4. Expect bicycles to move left in the traffic lane to pass and avoid debris in the road

  6. Give bicyclist all the right of way as any other full size slow moving vehicle
  7. When parked at a curb do not open the door on the traffic side of the vehicle without making sure that the lane is clear of vehicles including bicycles

*Bicycle riders have the same rights and responsibilities as automobile drivers. Motorists must treat cyclists the same as drivers of other motor vehicles. Bicyclists have a right to be and should be traveling on the road in the same direction as traffic. They are part of the traffic and share the road with other drivers
