Biking Season Has Begun

Caution Needed For Drivers, Pedestrians and Cyclists
The Minneapolis Police (MPD) are urging all drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to use caution on the roads. There has been a dramatic increase in accidents involving vehicles with pedestrians or bicycles in the past few weeks.
Warmer weather brings out additional walkers and cyclists, especially in entertainment districts and downtown. Drivers need to exercise more caution and walkers and cyclists need to be aware of their surroundings and watch out for themselves.
The MPD have stepped up enforcement of drivers not yielding, pedestrians jaywalking and cyclist not obeying the rules of the road. This enforcement effort is aimed at preventing accidents which result in life changing events for families.
