Safe Driving on California Roadways

Sharing the road is a shared responsibility. It is important to keep an eye out for those who are on the road with you.

The California Office of Traffic Safety’s “Go Safely” campaign advises drivers of the following:

  • Follow the posted speed limit.
  • Slow down your speed at intersections.
  • Give pedestrians the right of way at crosswalks and unmarked corners. Be ready to stop and let those on foot cross.
  • Apply extra care in less-than-ideal driving conditions. This may include dark, foggy, or rainy weather.
  • Respect all bicyclists. Give cyclists at least three to five feet of room when passing a bike. California law requires drivers to provide a minimum of three feet of space between a vehicle and a bicycle.
  • If there is not enough space to pass a bicyclist safely, be patient and wait until you can.
