Motorists and Bicyclists: Test Your Knowledge
According to the League of Illinois Bicyclists website, "Bicycling is a fun way for people to be active and healthy. Many people also bike for transportation and commute to work by bicycle. But, most of us received little or no training in school about proper bicycling safety techniques, or learned about sharing the road with bikes in driver education class."
How well do you know Illinois laws and safety techniques regarding car-bicycle interactions?
To help fill the education gap, the League of Illinois Bicyclists, a statewide bicycle organization, has developed BikeSafetyQuiz.com. This interactive quiz includes lessons for adult and child bicyclists as well as motorists. The quiz is designed to educate both brand new bike riders and drivers as well as experienced bicyclists and motorists hoping to refine their skills. Most users can complete the quizzes in 15-30 minutes.
The Village of Bartlett encourages residents – bicycle riders and motorists alike – to take the quiz. We will all get where we are going more safely.
