Sample message:
“Everyone has a part to play in keeping bicyclists safe. Be aware, be visible, and be responsible.

Tips for Bicyclists:

- Be visible: wear bright colors, reflective materials and lights on your bicycle at night and in low light conditions.
- Stay alert: don’t use electronic devices.
- Ride safe; riding impaired by alcohol or drugs affects your judgment and skill; it affects your safety and others on the road.

Tips for Motorists:

- Look for bicyclists before making turns, either left or right.
- Respect designated bicycle lanes; don’t use them for parking, passing or turning.
- Never drive distracted or impaired. Always buckle up.
