Not every person who uses roads does so behind the safety of a car wheel. Pedestrians and bicyclists also share the roads, and they have a right to do so safely. Unfortunately, their lives can be put in serious danger when there is a negligent, reckless driver who fails to take seriously their responsibility to watch out for others.
Roadways are not just for motor vehicles. Of course, cars and trucks dominate most roads, but pedestrians and bicyclists also have rights and responsibilities to keep in mind. When everyone makes smart, safe decisions, pedestrians, motorists, bicyclists and everyone on the road is safer.
