Police have urged Frankston and Mornington Peninsula road users to be cautious as more people get out and about on bicycles to exercise during lockdown.
“With Stage 4 restrictions in place, cyclists are more likely to be riding in local streets within their 5km local radius,” police wrote in an online post. “This can mean the potential for a collision with vehicles reversing from driveways, and the risk of serious injury, is higher.
“As we stay closer to home to exercise, all road users – including drivers and cyclists – need to be aware of their surroundings in these shared spaces.”
Police called on everyone to keep working together to stay safe.
Peninsula resident Natasha commented that she could see cyclists sooner when they wore reflective or bright gear.
Fellow resident Paul added: “Cyclists are not the problem. It’s all the idiots walking on the roads who think they are entitled to.”
