Colorado’s a great place to live, especially this time of year, when the weather is warmer and it’s so nice to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

But as more of our neighbors are also enjoying the outdoors on foot or bicycles, we need to take some precautions when driving our vehicles. The same also holds true for those of us traveling on foot or bike. Don’t assume the drivers will get out of your way.

It’s really not that hard. It just takes a little bit of effort and attention. One of the first ways to start is by obeying all of the traffic laws. That means observe posted speed limits, signal your intentions, cross in crosswalks and stop at red traffic lights.

Also, be alert and make eye contact. Eye contact is one of the best ways to make sure that others – whether on bike, foot or vehicle - see you coming.

Here are some more tips, broken down by mode of travel:

Vehicle Drivers

·         Assume pedestrians and cyclists are out and about at all times.

·         Yield to pedestrians and bikes when making turns.

·         Pay attention and get off your apps or phone.

·         Respect pedestrians’ rights. They have the right of way at crosswalks. At the same time, pedestrians need to make sure they look before they cross a street. There could be a distracted driver going by.


•         Don’t ride against traffic. Motorists simply aren't looking for bicyclists riding on the wrong side of the road.

•         If you want to be respected, you need to act like a motorist and obey the rules of the road. That includes traffic signs and signals.

•         Use hand signals. Hand signals let others know what you intend to do.

•         Wear bright clothing, especially at night.


•         Be alert. Don’t let electronics or listening to music distract you from what you are doing.

•         Pay special attention in parking lots, where drivers and pedestrians can be especially distracted.

•         Watch for turning cyclists and motorists. Don’t walk into the intersection because the light has changed without looking first.

•         Cross streets at crosswalks.

And finally, have a safe and enjoyable summer!
