You can put your knowledge of the rules of the road regarding bicycles to the test. The League of Illinois Bicyclists has created a quiz, at www.bikesafetyquiz.com, to test what you know.
“There are separate quizzes for adult bicyclists, motorists and child bicyclists. Each quiz has bronze, silver and gold levels of multiple-choice questions, with six to 12 questions per level. Many questions are tough. There’s no shame at all to missing questions on your first pass,” executive director Ed Barsotti said in unveiling the quiz.
Barsotti says lack of knowledge of or adherence to the rules by both drivers and bike riders causes crashes, as well as anger and resentment and people afraid to ride bikes on the roads.
The League of Illinois Bicyclists is offering cash prizes for schools that participate and get high scores.
