Road safety guidelines

C-Sécurité code de la route

Watch out for blind spots!

C- Sécurité angles morts



Blind spots are the first cause of cycle accidents so watch out! Blind spots correspond to the full right & left length of vehicles, leaving drivers unable to see anyone cycling beside them. Lorries and busses have significant blind spots where cyclists are invisible.




- Make sure you are always able to see drivers’ eyes, which is a sign that they are able to see you. Make eye contact with drivers.

- Never pass a vehicle on the right

- Keep your distance from vehicles

- Avoid stopping too close to the front of a lorry or a bus

- Remain visible at all times
