Motorists and bicyclists are being reminded of the rules for sharing the road safely. Putnam County Sheriff Robert Langley serves as Chairman of the Putnam County Traffic Safety Board. Drivers must pass “at a safe distance” when overtaking a bicyclist traveling along the same side of the road. When riding along a road, bicyclists must be near the right-hand curb or in a usable right-hand shoulder. Bicyclists may not ride more than two abreast, but single file when being overtaken by a vehicle.
