The sixth and final episode in the #MyDrivingMatters 2.0 vodcast series is on sharing the road. In the last decade, we’ve seen many more different types of vehicles sharing the roads with us in addition to pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Some of these new vehicle types include e-bikes and both single- and two-wheel electric scooters to name a few. Even though there are quite a wide range of vehicles on the road today, for the most part, our road system remains unchanged. In this episode, we talk about strategies for these different types of vehicles and road users to share the road safely. We also talk about the equitable sharing of responsibility on the road so that everyone gets home safely.
