On the Road
July 17-23

Be Courteous

  • All vehicles using the road must obey traffic laws, signs and signals. Cars, trucks, bicycles, unicycles… the rules apply to everyone.
  • Share the road. Bicycles traveling on the road have the same rights- and the same responsibilities- as motor vehicles. Bicycles are allowed on all roads within the City of Glenwood Springs. Respect their right to be there, and give them space when passing (Colorado law requires 3 feet).
  • Pedestrians should obey pedestrian signals and cross at marked crosswalks when possible.

Be Kind

  • Bicyclists and Pedestrians: Help drivers help you. Wear bright clothing so you are more visible.
  • Bicyclists: Be predictable. Avoid weaving in and out of traffic, or suddenly alternating between sidewalk and road. Always signal your intentions when moving to take the lane or making a turn.

Be Aware

  • Avoid distracted driving, biking, AND walking.
  • Drivers: Be on the lookout for bicyclists and pedestrians. Look over your left shoulder before opening your car door to make sure no bicyclists or other traffic is approaching.
