June is 'Bike Safety Month' and regional police are out with some reminders on how to share the road properly.

Last year, officers responded to a total of 115 reports of collisions involving vehicles and cyclists.

Police say drivers should always keep at least one-metre of space between their vehicle and a cyclist. 

They add to always remember to signal, use their mirrors and check their blind spots when passing or changing lanes.

It also goes for safely getting out of your vehicle when parked on the side of the street to make sure you aren't opening your door into the path of an oncoming cyclist.
