The “I Share the Road” campaign is working to humanize bicyclists in Mississippi by reminding people that people who ride bikes are also mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons!  We want to advocate statewide for education, compassion and increased MUTUAL RESPECT on the roads.  

And, with YOUR help, WE CAN!

DON’T FORGET TO SIGN THE ONLINE PLEDGE!

By signing my name below, I pledge:

- To be safe and respectful when walking or bicycling on the roads & trails in MS.
-To drive the speed limit, obey traffic laws and to limit my own distracted driving.
-To treat bicyclists with respect when passing; even changing lanes to pass when necessary.
- To watch for pedestrians at marked and unmarked crossings and to look for runners on the road.
- To look out for children, elderly, disabled and other vulnerable users of the roads.
- To share with others the importance of showing mutual respect on Mississippi’s roads.

Sign the Pledge TODAY: "I SHARE THE ROAD!"

Bike Walk Mississippi believes that the “Share the Road” concept should be addressed from an inclusive and participatory perspective and one that encourages a mutual respect from ALL users of the road. We want to encourage a sense of good-will and friendliness to our fellow citizens and we want to remind others that people walking, driving or riding bikes are everyday people...they are mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. When you encounter another user of the road, please remember that "everyone is someone's everything". Take a step by committing to building a mutual respect on Mississippi's roads.

We also know that change starts from within. By taking the “I Share the Road” pledge, we ask that when you are on the road, you are committed to a mentality of mutual respect toward other people who are using the road in other ways.

As this is my commitment, I pledge:

- To be safe and respectful when walking or bicycling on the roads & trails in MS.
- To treat bicyclists with respect when passing; even changing lanes to pass when necessary.
- To drive the speed limit, obey traffic laws and to limit my own distracted driving.
- To watch for pedestrians at marked and unmarked crossings and to look for runners on the road.
- To look out for children, elderly, disabled and other vulnerable users of the roads.
- To share with others the importance of showing mutual respect on Mississippi's roads.

Change starts with me and I proclaim with pride that, “I Share the Road!” #respectallusers
