The UK has one of the best road safety records in the world. But it pays to have a good knowledge of road safety whether you are walking, driving or cycling.
Cycling is a great way to get around Aberdeen and stay healthy. As a cyclist you have the right to use the road and cycle path network but you must still follow the Highway Code.
Aberdeen Cycle Forum, together with Aberdeen City Council, have produced a map for cyclists in the city. Download your free cycle map or pick one up from local libraries and the Tourist Information shop on Union Street.
Sustrans also provide a range of information about the best cycle routes up and down the UK.
When you’re out driving be respectful to other road users. If you have an incident, stay calm and resolve it sensibly. You’ll find more information about how to drive safe and drive smart from Road Safety Scotland.
