Manitoba Public Insurance Reminds Motorists to Leave One Metre Distance When Passing a Cyclist

With summer on the way Manitoba Public Insurance is reminding all motorists that there is an increase in recreational and commuter cyclists on the roads and on average 4 cyclists are killed in motor vehicle accidents a year in Manitoba and about 100 are injured.

 

Drivers are reminded to leave a distance of at least one metre when passing a cyclist even if it requires you to change lanes to make a safe pass, be cautious at intersections and watch for cyclists when making a left or right turn, and to watch for cyclists when opening the door of your vehicle.

 

Cyclists are reminded to always follow the rules of the road including stop signs and stop lights and to never pass stopped vehicles in the same lane or when stopped at an intersection as the driver may not see you.

 

MPI’s ultimate goal is to have zero fatalities and injuries on Manitoba’s Roads.
