Bicycle Safety should be one of the first things you think about when planning your bicycling trip, whether it is a day out with the family or a commute to work, taking the proper safety precautions can save lives.
Safety tips to keep in mind:
| || Always Wear a Helmet|
A proper-fitting helmet is the best thing you can do to save your life in case of an accident. It is also the law for riders under 18 years old. Protect Your Head!
Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
Bicycles are considered vehicles. Bicyclists must obey the same rules as motorists. Make sure to observe stop signs, signals and basic right-of-way rules.
Never Ride Against Traffic
Always go single file in the same direction as the other vehicles. Riding against traffic puts you where most motorists don’t expect you.
Ride on the Right
In general, always ride as close as practical to the right edge of the roadway except when passing, making a left turn or avoiding an unsafe road hazard.
Make Eye Contact with Drivers
Assume that other drivers don’t see you until you are sure that they do. Eye contact is important with any driver who might pose a threat to your safety.
Don’t Weave Between Parked Cars
Don’t ride out to the curb between parked cars unless they are far apart. Motorists may not see you when you try to move back into traffic.
Keep Hands Ready to Brake
You may not stop in time if you brake one-handed. Allow extra distance for stopping in the rain, since brakes are less effective when wet.
Hand signal tell motorists and pedestrians what you intend to do. Signal as a matter of law, of courtesy and of self-protection.
Follow Lane Markings
Don’t turn left from the right lane. Don’t go straight in a lane marked “right turn only.”
Choose the Best Way to Turn Left
There are 2 choices to safely making a left turn: (1) Like an auto: signal and move into the left turn lane and turn left. (2) Like a pedestrian: ride straight to the far side crosswalk, dismount and walk your bike across.
Use Lights at Night
The law requires a white headlight (visible from at least 300 feet ahead) and a rear reflector or taillight (visible up to 500 feet from behind), as well as wheel and pedal reflectors. Wear reflective clothing.
Don’t Pass on the Right
Motorists may not look for or see a bicycle passing on the right.
Avoid Road Hazards
Watch out for parallel-slat sewer grates, gravel, ice, oil patches, wet leaves, potholes or debris. Cross railroad tracks at right angles.
Look Before Passing or Merging
Leave 3 to 4 feet when passing a motor vehicle or another bicyclist. Give a clear warning or call out, “Passing on your left.” Some riders use rear-view mirrors.
Ride In Front, or Far Behind, Not Beside
To ensure drivers of large vehicles can see you, stay out of their blind spots and ride far enough behind for the driver to see you. Keep at least 4 feet away from the sides to avoid falling under a large vehicle.
Expect a car to pull out or turn left in front of you. Expect a car door to open in front of you. Ride at least a door’s width away from parked cars. Take all precautions for a safe ride.
