Question
While driving on a two-lane road without bicycle lanes, you encounter a bicyclist traveling in the same direction. What is the safest way to pass the bicyclist?
Answers
A.  Slow down and wait until there is no traffic approaching, then pass the bicyclist while leaving him or her sufficient space.
B.  Continue driving straight. It is the bicyclist’s responsibility to get out of your way.
C.  Do not pass the bicyclist until you come to a traffic signal or stop sign.
D.  Honk at the bicyclist to let him or her know you are about to pass.
Explanation
You should pass a bicyclist the same way you would pass any other vehicle, but not so fast or close to them that you throw debris in their face or blow them around with the draft of air from your vehicle. Allow at least 3 feet of space between your side mirror and the bicyclist, or at least 5 feet on higher speed roads or when there is a group of bicyclists. Honking unnecessarily may startle riders and make them more likely to crash.
