Bicycle safety starts with all of us

With the weather warming up, more people are taking to our streets and trails on bicycles. Whether you drive a car, ride a bicycle or do some of each, safer streets start with all of us. Data shows that bicyclists and drivers are equally responsible for bicycle crashes in Minneapolis.

When you bike, remember to follow traffic laws and ride predictably. When you drive, remember to slow down and look for bicyclists, especially when turning.

Bicycling in Minneapolis is getting safer. As more people have started riding, bicycle crashes have not increased.

No matter how you get around, thank you for making our streets safer.

Please share this video with folks in your personal and professional networks about why it’s important for both cyclists and drivers to know the road. The video is also available in Spanish, Somali and Hmong.
