It is bike season once again, and with that comes some reminders we would like to share with those that use our roads. Please remind children to share the sidewalks with pedestrians, dogs, and other young cyclists. Whether you are cycling or scootering, always be aware of your surroundings when using the sidewalks, especially at intersections, driveways, and back lanes, as vehicle drivers and pedestrians may not see you. When on the roadway, be aware of potential dangers and parked vehicles, always travel single file to the right in the same direction as vehicle travel and obey the same traffic signals and signs that vehicles do. This includes stopping at stop signs and red lights. Utilizing hand-signals will help keep you safe, as well as wearing bright clothing and ALWAYS wearing a safety helmet. In Manitoba, it is law that anyone under the age of 18 years must wear a properly fitted and fastened helmet while cycling. For busier streets like Thornhill Street and Mountain Street, travelling on the sidewalk is safer for all cyclists if they respect pedestrians and do so safely.
Anyone with information regarding the above incidents is asked to call the Morden Police Service at (204)822-4900, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or submit a secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com.
