Windsor Police along with the Windsor Bicycling Committee, are conducting a bicycle safety education and enforcement campaign from July 13th to 19th.

Police say that all drivers should be aware of the dangers of opening car doors into the path of cyclists, and the importance of checking blind spots prior to making right turns.

Officers will pay particular attention to those motorists who endanger the lives of cyclists by passing at an unsafe distance or by parking in designated bike lanes.

Attention will also be paid to cyclists whose aggressive riding behaviour puts them, pedestrians and motorists at risk. Cyclists should be on the road, not on the sidewalk. They should ride in the same direction as motorists, even in designated bike lanes.

Police stress that cyclists must follow the same rules of the road as motorists by obeying traffic signs and lights and be visible at night.
