Share the Road

Share the Road is more than a phrase. It is a requirement in the narrow San Antonio Hills roads. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists all share the same roads.

Pedestrians should walk near the side of the road, (not in the middle of the lane), facing traffic. During dusk and night hours, they should wear light colored or reflective clothing, and carry a flashlight; moving it from side to side so that they can readily be seen by others.

Bicyclists must follow the rules of the road, and ride with traffic in the same lanes used by motorists. During the night hours, the bicyclists should also wear light colored or reflective clothing. Their bikes should have operating head and tail lights. Some roads have a white stripe which marks the edge of the road. This is not a path or a bike lane unless so designated by signage. It is there to help in foggy conditions and during night hours.

Motorists must be aware of others sharing the road, and adhere to the speed limits as posted. Motorists should expect that radar will be used from time to time as posted and drive defensively and cautiously to avoid incidents and traffic tickets.

Thanks for your cooperation.
