TRAFFIC BLOCKS.

Do not hold on to a motor vehicle even when it is stationary where traffic is held up. Make no attempt to gain a forward position in a traffic block by cycling along the narrow spaces between stationary vehicles. They may start suddenly and you will impede them and endanger yourself.

AT NIGHT.

Remember that in the dark you are not easily visible to following traffic. Act accordingly and keep well to the left of the road.

If you do not use a red rear lamp remember to keep your red reflector clean and properly fixed.

[It is an offence under the Road Transport Lighting Act to ride at night without either a red rear lamp or an unobscured and efficient red reflector.]

SPECIAL DUTIES TOWARDS PEDESTRIANS AND ANIMALS.

Respect the rights of pedestrians. Aged or infirm people and young children and those In charge of them call for your special courtesy.

Take special care not to endanger children. Remember that they are likely to dash into the road unexpectedly. Look out for school signs.

When passing or overtaking pedestrians or animals give them plenty of room.

Show special consideration towards horses and horse-drawn vehicles.
