Sharing the Road in Virginia: Laws & Safety Tips for Bicyclists, Pedestrians, and Motorists

NVRC operates the “Sharing the Road” project geared to bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers in Virginia.  The project is funded by Federal Highway safety funds through the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.  Project activities include the website www.Sharevaroads.org, pocket guides and tip sheets distributed throughout the Commonwealth, and safety training and outreach in Northern Virginia. 

NVRC, state and local staff, and safety advocates developed a pocket guide for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. The fourth edition of the pocket guide,"Sharing the Road in Virginia," is in print and available in English and Spanish. NVRC will be developing a website associated with the guide, as well as producing Spanish and another language version of the guide and website. To order bulk numbers of the guide (in excess of 350 copies) at a discounted rate or for more information please contact .
