Flash Cards

Summary: Flash cards for teaching bicycle safety.

The US Department of Transportation has developed a small set of flash cards for teaching bicycle safety in English and Spanish.

You can download a .pdf file with the flashcards, and print them out on the heaviest paper you have available, cutting them into 3.5 by 5 inch cards. If you printer will do both sides of a page, set it under Properties to "Flip on long edge." Or you can print one page, turn the sheet over sideways and print the second page on the back of it.

The cards may be available from DOT, but we don't know where. They were done in color on nice stiff glossy stock. Look on the web for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) bike safety resources.

You can also download the same cards in Spanish to print them out.

Here is the English text on the cards, with the question on the front and the answer (shown here in parentheses) on the back:
