Traffic Advisory for the Week of May 6-12, 2024


Road Safety Reminder for the Week

Changing Lanes

Before you change lanes:

  • Signal.
  • Check your mirrors.
  • Check traffic behind and beside you.
  • Look over your shoulder in the direction you plan to move to make sure the lane is clear.
  • Check your blind spots for other vehicles, motorcyclists, and bicyclists. Do not let the vehicle drift into another lane.
  • Be sure there is enough space for your vehicle in the next lane. It is not necessary to slow down before a lane change.

Stay in one lane as much as possible. Do not weave in and out of traffic. Last minute lane or direction changes may increase the risk of collisions. Once you start moving through an intersection, keep going. If you start to make a turn, follow through. If you miss a turn, keep driving until you can safely and legally turn around.
