Walk and Roll Safely

5 tips for street safety

Whether you’re walking, biking, skating, or scooting, read on for critical safety tips!

Protect your head

You can prevent so many injuries simply by wearing a properly fitted helmet.

Wear bright colors

Dark clothing is especially hard to see for a driver. Stand out as much as possible by wearing a bright jacket, shirt, or helmet.

Light the way

Front and rear lights are required for all bikes after dark – and a good idea for all other modes! Make sure drivers and other travelers can see you on the road after dark.
