Tips for Driving Around People on Bikes

With more and more bikes on our streets, it is important for drivers to know how to drive safely around cyclists. These safety tips come from our friends at Georgia Bikes.

  • Give bikes at least 3 feet of safe distance when passing or following. The State of Georgia has a Three-Foot law.
  • Bicycles are vehicles and allowed on all roadways.
  • When making turns, watch for and yield to people on bikes.
  • Do not park in or block a bike lane.
  • Check mirrors before opening doors, especially if parked  next to a bike lane.
  • Be alert, cautious, and attentive when driving. Do not drive distracted.
