Now that the slippery season is here, it’s time for a friendly reminder to drivers:

Respect pedestrians and cyclists

In addition to the general caution required of all drivers at all times, please remember to avoid splashing those of us on foot or bicycle. There is usually enough space on the road to move over enough that you won’t splash us, and when there isn’t you should slow down enough that your spray doesn’t hit us. Be observant and notice how far your spray is traveling and who is around. Remember, you have the right to walk, run, and cycle on the roads, but driving is a revocable privilege. So please, be sure to only make safe passes.
