Cyclists, Drivers Urged To Watch Out For Each Other

DENVER (CBS4)– Police in Denver are asking cyclists and drivers to watch out for each other this summer.

The city’s new “Heads Up” campaign is aimed at reminding drivers to be courteous and aware of cyclists on the road.

Police are amending their message to include cyclists, reminding them they need to follow the rules of the road.

“There is a common misconception that they can run stop signs, ride on the wrong side of the road and sidewalk. That is wrong. They have to follow the rules of the roads. Motorists feel that they don’t belong on the road which is inaccurate also,” said Denver Police Sgt. Brady Carter.

Police said most accidents happen when cyclists come off a sidewalk and dart out onto the street.
