It’s really important to be courteous and alert when you’re driving at all times – especially when it comes to sharing the road with other drivers and people on bikes and e-bikes. You also need to watch for micro-mobility devices like e-scooters and e-skateboards – although these devices should be kept to the footpath or paths shared with people on bikes.
There are also special conditions for motorists around bus lanes.
Be extra-cautious around road crossings – pedestrians, people on bikes and micro-mobility users all use these – so slow down when you’re approaching a crossing and be prepared to stop.
There are also situations where people on bikes get priority on the road in areas where there are sharrows. If you’re using a shared zone in the city, remember – all people using these areas must give way to pedestrians. Again, it’s a case of being aware, slowing right down and being courteous.
