Ride Illinois Offers Free Bicycle-Friendly Driver Courses

Bicycle advocacy organization Ride Illinois continues to offer monthly online courses designed to educate drivers of motor vehicles how to drive safely near cyclists and increase safety for all road users. Their bicycle-friendly driver courses, entitled "Who’s Lane is It?", will focus on the Illinois Rules of the Road, sharing the road, bike infrastructure, causes of common crashes, taking the lane and the information that Ride Illinois shares with cyclists in education courses. As the number of injuries and fatalities on Illinois roadways continues to increase, bicyclists and pedestrians are particularly vulnerable and this course shares information that could reverse the trend. The schedule of Bicycle-Friendly Driver courses is as follows:
Wednesday, March 30, 7:00 p.m.
Thursday, April 28, 12:00 p.m.
