More and more people are trading in their cars and opting to go green. Whether it is for environmental reasons, exercise, or pure enjoyment, biking is a great mode of transportation and fantastic way to keep active.
Road Safety Requirements
Road safety requires both motorists and cyclists to be vigilant and obey the rules of the road to avoid accidents. When cyclists and motorists work together, the chance of a collision is greatly reduced. The Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act makes it clear that cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists in order to prevent accidents. Motorists must be aware of cyclists and share the road. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen.
