Understanding Traffic Signs and Signals
Whether you’re using active travel for work, leisure or something else, it’s important to stay alert and be aware of different road signs and signals.
Having a good understanding of what different road signs mean and how to use bicycle lanes and shared paths can help to make your journey safer and more relaxing. If you have children and are thinking about letting them walk or cycle to school, it’s important to make sure they have a good understanding of this, too!
