Always Share the Road

Whether the roads on which you drive the most are in Macomb or elsewhere, Land Rover Lakeside urges you to share the road with bicyclists. We offer tips today to help drivers and bicyclists achieve that end.

When you drive, stay alert. Distracted driving is dangerous. Never cruise in the same lane beside a bicyclist. You both need more reaction space than a side-by-side formation allows. Remember that cyclists are entitled to a lane's entire width. Only pass them when you can leave them a three-foot buffer while not impeding motorists in other lanes.

While all-season tires work well in warmer conditions, the hard rubber than they are made of gets less flexible when the temperatures start to drop. These tires are great for people who don't frequently drive in the cold.
