Unless you are driving on an interstate, it is possible you will be sharing the road with other types of road users. For example, you may encounter pedestrians and bicyclists while driving in urban, suburban, or rural areas. These situations are dangerous because collisions between vehicles and cyclists or pedestrians often result in serious injuries or fatalities. This course will identify clues that cyclists and pedestrians may become hazards and strategies to prevent collisions with cyclists or pedestrians.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe why crashes occur between cars and cyclists or pedestrians
  • Identify clues that cyclists and pedestrians may become hazards
  • Identify strategies to prevent collisions with cyclists or pedestrians

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Why is it important to take extra precautions wherever you may encounter pedestrians or cyclists?
It is important because pedestrians and cyclists are difficult to see and may get lost in your vehicle's blind spots. Additionally, the actions of pedestrians and cyclists may be difficult to predict.

What is the first and most important strategy when sharing the road with cyclists or pedestrians?
The first, and most important strategy, is to continuously scan your surroundings to identify cyclists or pedestrians that may develop into hazards.

What are defensive driving techniques you can use around cyclists?
One technique is to be observant of obstacles in the road. If you notice an obstacle in front of the cyclist, just slow down and allow the cyclist to safely navigate the obstacle before passing.
