Safety infographic from BikeArlington

The folks at BikeArlington recently created an excellent traffic safety graphic. It's part of their PAL campaign
As more people go on Arlington's Car-Free Diet, there are more cyclists and walkers sharing the street with drivers. Whether you're on two feet, two wheels or four wheels, everyone needs to be a PAL to safely share the streets.

Being a PAL means being:
  • Predictable - travel in a predictable way; don't make sudden unexpected moves
  • Alert - pay attention to your surrounds and to others
  • Lawful - obey traffic laws, whether in a car, on a bike, or on foot
I like the info about Sharrows (or Shared Lane Markings). FABB has discussed the need for educating everyone about their use. Here's how it's shown on the graphic:

We'll try to get printed copies to use at our events this year. Good job BikeArlington!
