Bike, Pedestrian & Vehicle Safety on Campus

With the weather warming up more people are taking to walking, jogging, bicycling, rollerblading, and more in the great outdoors.  We recommend you exercise extra caution while traveling on and around Andrews campus.  Whether you walk, ride a bike, drive, or use alternative methods of transportation, be aware of your surroundings and take extra care.

The Michigan Secretary of State's office has published a handy book, "What Every Driver Should Know."  Here are some key tips included in the book:

When there are no sidewalks, pedestrians should walk on the side of the road facing oncoming traffic. Parents should teach their children this, but drivers must watch for pedestrians 

Be alert for joggers running along roadways. Joggers should wear reflective clothing, use sidewalks or roadway shoulders, and avoid jogging at night, dawn, dusk, or during bad weather. Joggers, like other pedestrians, should be on the side of the road facing oncoming traffic.

A bicycle lane is a portion of the roadway with pavement markings and signs exclusively for bicyclists. This lane shall not be used by motorists as a driving lane or for parking.

Pages 116-117 of the book include tips for bicyclists.  

The Campus Safety Handbook is available online; please contact Campus Safety with any questions.
