(Quiz) Are You A Road Hog?

Most of us are taught as kids that sharing is the right thing to do. But drivers of cars, as well as riders of motorcycles and bicycles can seem more apt to stoke each other’s rage than happily share the road.

And with more people commuting to work on bicycles than ever before (across cities, the average increase from 2000 to 2013 was 62 percent, according to the League of American Bicyclists), it’s crucial that all drivers watch out for each other. Answer the following questions to see if your road-sharing skills need sharpening.

    Common sense people a motorcyclist has no protection even though they are rolling down the road treat them like they are a pedestrian give them an invisible barrier or bubble try not to ride side by side for extended lengths of time in front or behind change it up on 2 or more lanes going the same direction just my opinion

  2. Linda Carlota Flores says,

    I love this type of teaching. I didn’t pass the test, but I learned much about now. Thanks for educating your customers. I already posted your test on my Facebook page.

    I missed the questions about motorcycles. I gave the cycle more than is required; possibly because I was reacting like a mother who has a beloved son that rides a Harley and grandchildren that also like them.
