The Inglewood Police Department encourages everyone to “go safely” during National Bicycle Safety Month

May is National Bicycle Safety Month and the Inglewood Police Department is encouraging those out walking, driving or riding their bikes to look out for one another while practicing social distancing measures.

“Biking is a great way to get fresh air and exercise, but keep in mind others who were staying at home too may have the same idea,” Chief Mark Fronterotta said. “It’s important to keep you and your family safe by remaining aware of your surroundings.”

In an effort to educate drivers and bicyclists on using roadways safely, the Inglewood Police Department will have extra officers on patrol this month on May 7 and 21 looking for violations made by drivers and bicyclists that increase the risk of crashes. Such violations include failing to yield, speeding, improper turning, riding a bike on the wrong side of the road or not following stop signs or signals.

The Inglewood Police Department suggests following these tips to ensure the safety of everyone using roadways:
 Always wear a helmet and never ride impaired.
 Follow social distancing measures and maintain at least six feet of physical space between other riders and those out walking.
 Be seen: Wear brightly colored clothing and have bike lights handy (front white light and rear red flashing light or reflectors.)
 Use hand signals when turning or stopping.
 Rules of the road still apply: Bicyclists must travel in the same direction of traffic and have the same requirements as any slow moving vehicle.
