AAA launches bike program

MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — With the return of warmer weather, more people will be out on bicycles. May is Bike Safety Month, and a good time to focus on safety and the rules of the road.

AAA, which is known for its roadside assistance program, is now offering a new program for cyclists. Riders who get a flat, lose a chain or have another problem, can call AAA and get help. News 8’s Noelle Gardner spoke with AAA about the program on Good Morning Connecticut Wednesday.

AAA reminds drivers to:

  • Check mirrors & blind spots
  • Give a 3 foot clearance when passing
  • Check before opening car doors
  • Never honk horn at bicyclists
