Bicycle Lanes and Parking Big Rigs: Truckers Sharing the Road / Bus Drivers Sharing the Road

Short link to this post: https://bit.ly/BigRigsBikes

Bicycle lanes are for…bicycles! And a big rig driver who is a parking pro—like the Reliable Carriers professional below— knows how to park their truck (or bus) in a way that doesn’t intrude on bike lanes.
Wherever you ride, when you see a truck or bus whose driver is mindful of sharing the road with bicycles, please let them know they’re appreciated. Post a photo on social media, with the hashtag #TruckerSharingTheRoad (or for buses, hashtag it #BusDriverSharing the Road). If it’s a commercial vehicle, add a hashtag for their company name too, so their employer will more likely notice as well.

Bicycling Monterey loves to catch big rig drivers doing good – good job of pulling in tight and leaving the bike lanes clear for people on bicycles. Tip of the helmet to this @reliablecarriers driver spotted this eve on Garden Road, Monterey. Many truckers have arrived on the Monterey Peninsula for Aug 18-26 events, and their professionalism with parking skills varies. . . . When you catch them doing good, post their photos online with the hashtag #TruckerSharingTheRoad . . .
