Drivers are reminded bicyclists may legally ride on Michigan roads, except limited access freeways and should be patient and drive cautiously and wait until enough space is available to pass bicyclists or other users in the roadway. The Michigan Secretary of State advises drivers to “pass a bicyclist as you would another vehicle, but not so fast or close that your tires throw dirt or stones into the rider’s face or that a draft from your vehicle blows the bicycle about.” Bicycles belong in the street with cars and our Michigan Vehicle Code explains this very clearly. So when driving around Dearborn or any other city, slow down and pass the bicyclists safely rather than yell at them to get out of the *beeping* road. We as bicyclists are people too. We are mothers. We are Fathers. We are sisters and brothers. We are your neighbor. We are members of the same community. Come bike with us! Bike Dearborn! For more info on Michigan traffic laws pertaining to bicycles, please visit the League of Michigan Bicyclistswhere they have compiled all laws in Michigan that pertain to bicyclies in the road.
