Bicycle safety is a two-way street -- bicyclists and motorists must Share the Road. Bicycles are considered vehicles in Maryland, so bicyclists must devote as much attention to riding a bike as they would when operating a motor vehicle. Equally as important, motorists must allow cyclists the same respect and caution they would allow another vehicle. Motorists should allow as much room as possible and at least (3) three foot gap when passing a bicyclist. We’re on this road together – expect and respect!
