Cycling Tip: Passing

You are required by Wisconsin law to exercise due care when passing parked cars. You must give parked or stopped buses at least three feet of space.

When passing moving vehicles, you must pass on the left and allow a safe distance between yourself and the other vehicle. If the moving vehicle you’re passing happens to be a bicycle, it’s always polite to give a friendly audible warning, such as a bell ring or a “Hello, passing on your left.”

Share & Be Aware materials were developed through a partnership between the Wisconsin Bike Fed and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Safety.
