Sharing the road: Safety tips for cyclists & motorists

 

School is back in session and that means car, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic around schools are heavy, especially right before and after school.  Drivers need to be extra careful when driving in the school zone.  Kids on bicycles can be unpredictable.

 

According to the California DMV each year in California, more than 100 people are killed and hundreds of thousands more are injured in bicycle collisions. Some bicycle related crashes are connected to the bicyclist’s behavior, while others are due to the motorist’s lack of attention.  Motorists and bicyclists must follow the rules and share the road.

 

 

Did you know?

 

- Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists.

- It is illegal and unsafe for bicyclists to ride against (or facing) traffic.

- Motorists must maintain at least three feet clearance when passing a bicyclist.  If you are unable to pass within 3 feet of space, pass at a safe speed to not endanger the bicyclist.

- Bicyclists must obey all traffic controls, lights, signs, and signals.  It’s the law.

 

Driving a car or bicycle on roadways requires care and courtesy.  So, put down your cell phone when driving, and give your full attention to the road.  Let’s make sure our youngest citizens are safe when riding their bikes to or from school.

Catalytic converter thefts - on the rise

 

Your car has something in it that’s in high demand for thieves.  No, it’s not your GPS or your cell phone.  The item in questions is underneath your car, takes only seconds to remove, and is required for your car to run properly and legally.  It’s your car’s catalytic converter.

 

Roseville has seen an increase in converter thefts in recent months. In July alone, there were 12 thefts.  That compares to 14 thefts in all of 2017.  The Toyota Tacoma was the most frequently targeted vehicle with 8 of the 12 thefts. Thieves generally target high profile vehicles like trucks or SUVs because the higher ground clearance allows for easier access underneath.  However, that doesn’t mean sedans or sports cars are immune to converter theft. Of particular interest to thieves are newer vehicles that have two converters.

 

Why catalytic converters?  Thieves are attracted to catalytic converters for a couple of reasons, low risk and high reward.  Converters can often be removed in less than two minutes and have no identifiable markings. The precious metals (platinum, rhodium and palladium) contained in the converters can be extracted by recyclers and then sold for $800-$2,000 per ounce.

 

Don’t make your car an easy target for thieves.

 

· Park your car in your garage with the door closed when you are at home (or use motion-detection lights if parking in a driveway).

 

· Park your vehicle in well-populated, well-lit areas.

 

· Park close to a building entrance or to the nearest access road when parking in a public lot.  This is due to the increased amount of pedestrian traffic in those areas.

 

· If you have a security system on your car, calibrate it so vibration sets it off.  This ensures the alarm activates if a thief tries to saw off the converter.

 

· Consider talking with your mechanic on how to better secure your catalytic converter.

 

· Etch the license plate number on the catalytic converter.

 

· If you do become a victim of catalytic converter theft, file a report with the police department.

 

· Call the police department if you notice suspicious people hanging around vehicles for no apparent reason.

 

· Consider starting a Neighborhood Watch group with your neighbors.  By working together, you and your neighbors can look out for each other. 

 

Nothing can totally prevent a criminal from stealing your catalytic converter.  Thieves select vehicles that are easy targets.  However, you can make your vehicle less attractive to thieves by following the tips mentioned above.
