Driver, pedestrian and cyclist safety

With more people heading outside, residents are encouraged to share outdoor spaces safely.

  • Everyone - be courteous when sharing the trails with others, including walkers, cyclists, wheelchairs, scooters and joggers. Warn others of your presence when passing.
     
  • Drivers - expect more cyclists and pedestrians. Slow down and give space for all to be safe.
     
  • Pedestrians – make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street and share space on sidewalks and trails. Avoid paths during high-use times. We need to do our best to stay away from other people when going outside.
     
  • Cyclists – share the trail by slowing down when passing others; ring your bell to warn others of your presence; cross the street safely.
