BikeSafetyQuiz.com is a first-of-its-kind resource developed by Ride Illinois that teaches adults, children, motorists, and truck drivers how to share the road safely. The interactive quizzes cover safety techniques and relevant state laws using images and short explanations for each answer. The quiz is the teaching tool!
Each quiz has three distinct levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. There are thought-provoking quizzes for four different audiences:
Ride Illinois works to increase safe interactions – and reduce resentment – between motorists and cyclists. There are serious public education gaps on bicycling safely and on driving in the presence of cyclists. In-depth courses about cycling are limited in reach given the time and resources needed to participate.
By taking a “Some (info) to Lots (of people)” approach, the quiz is helping to share bike safety information with more people. Since the launch in 2013, nearly 200,000 people in Illinois have completed BikeSafetyQuiz!
