The warm weather is bringing a different dynamic to Ottawa's roads, causing Ottawa police and other road safety advocates to preach patient, legal behaviour.

Nine cyclists have been struck this week at locations across the city, according to police. None were seriously injured.

The number is a little higher than a normal week, said Sgt. Mark Gatien of the Ottawa police traffic unit.
