product-img4
It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. We’re all too familiar with driving down the road only to have a pedestrian step out in front of us, walking down the sidewalk to feel a bicyclist narrowly zip past or cycling in your designated lane to be nearly hit by a turning car.

Different rules apply in different situations, and you’re accountable for knowing when to go. It takes some effort, but by familiarizing yourself with the rules of the road, you can help bring safety and courtesy back to the streets of Auburn.
