Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth www.ottawainjury.ca Hopefully that gorgeous warm Ottawa weather we had last week will be back very soon. When the warm weather comes back so will the many children on their bicycles. It’s important to remember that these little ones haven’t formally been taught the “rules of the road”. I have a few reminders here for you to read and discuss with your child. I also wanted to remind us all to slow down when approaching these little guys on back. some of them are just learning to drive a bicycle and could veer off the sidewalk at any time. Some cyclists are also just learning the rules when it comes to sharing the road. Please be patient and extra cautious…Enjoy this upcoming spring Ottawa !
Child Cycling Safety :
–Always obey all street signs and signals.
-Always walk your bicycle while crossing the street.
-Cross the street at the corners only
-Do not drive a bicycle after dark or in dangerous weather.
-Check carefully..STOP and look to the left, to the right and then the left again before entering traffic
-Use the right-hand side of the road, and ride in the same direction as traffic. don’t double up with your friend. —Ride your bicycle single file.
-Use bicycle safety hand signals.
-Always wear bright coloured clothing and reflective clothing and accessories so cars can see you.
-Always wear a helmet and make sure it fits well.
Most of all use common safe and cycle safely !
