As weather warms, officials stress bike safety
Motorists, be aware — it’s cycling season.
And the advice to cyclists — obey traffic laws.
With the return of warm weather, cyclists will be appearing more often on the roads for recreation, exercise or family activities.
“Georgia law allows cyclists on the road and all the rules of the road apply,” said Sgt. Kurt Catudal of the Carrollton Police Department’s bicycle unit. “It’s safer to ride in the roadway. There’s less debris and few bumps.”
