Bike Safety Quiz

This past June, the Ride Illinois launched www.bikesafetyquiz.com, an interactive resource with brief but thorough quiz-based lessons - one each for Adult Bicyclists, Child Bicyclists, and Motorists. The content, approved by the Secretary of State's Office, covers relevant state laws, safety techniques and how to avoid common crash types. The Ride Illinois has started working with bike shops, bike clubs, driver's education instructors, towns, schools, police and others to promote its use. If you have not seen it yet, check it out and take the quiz today! For those who complete the quiz, a "Certificate of Completion" can be printed out.
