Ride Smart: Use Hand Signals When Bicycling

We lvoe seeing so many people in Decatur on their bikes. Let’s make sure we bike safely and use hand signals when you are turning, changing lanes or stopping. Get into the habit so when there are more cars back on the road, you will be ready!

 

Left Turn: Fully extend your left arm out to the side
Right Turn: Fully extend your right arm out to the side or bend your left arm up at a right angle with your hand flat.
Slowing or Stopping: Extend your left arm out at a right angle with your hand open
