Bike Safety Tips

When riding your bicycle, it is important that you follow all safety precautions. If you come into contact with another vehicle, it will assuredly damage you and your bicycle much more than the automobile. Here are some safety guidelines to follow while riding:

  • Always wear a helmet
  • Use a headlight and tail light while riding at night to increase visibility
  • Ride further to the left, as opposed to near the curb
  • Slow down if you are encountering a vehicle that has not made eye contact with you
  • Do not ride against traffic
  • Be extra cautious when riding on sidewalks
  • Avoid riding in a car’s blind spot
  • Do not pass on the right
  • Always maintain your bicycle’s brakes

Unfortunately, even if you follow all safety precautions and traffic laws, accidents can still occur. If you have been injured in a collision with an automobile, you may be entitled compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other related fees.
