Bicyclists have the right to share the road with drivers. Unfortunately, there have been several incidents in which bicyclists have collided with vehicles. There's really no comparison as to who gets the brunt of the impact, so it's important for drivers in Clarkston to be mindful of others on the road.

The first thing we ask our customers to do at Bowman Commercial is to put down their cell phones. Distracted driving is never a good idea. We also ask drivers to be cognizant of the speed limit since those have been set with safety in mind.

When you come across a bicyclist in your lane, you may pass when everything is clear. Allow for at least three feet of buffer room between you and the bike. Practice patience if traffic is busy, as you can certainly wait a few minutes if it means you can prevent any type of accident.
