Drivers asked to share the road

Tribune staff report

With spring at hand and more people biking along roads, the Nevada Highway Patrol is starting a Share the Road campaign to educate people about laws pertaining to drivers and bicyclists.

If there is more than one lane for traffic proceeding in the same direction, drivers passing a bicyclist must move to the lane to the immediate left if it is reasonably safe to do so. If there is only one lane for traffic, drivers must pass to the left of the bicyclist at a safe distance, which must not be less than three feet.

Nevada Highway Patrol will step up enforcement around Northern Nevada this spring and summer to ensure motorists are safely sharing the road with bicyclists.
