Prevention and Safety

There are ways to reduce the risk of accidents and bicycle injuries on the road, including:

  • Wear a helmet
  • Ride a bike that is appropriate for your size, weight and skill level
  • Follow traffic laws
  • Check your bicycle’s tires and gears every time you ride
  • Keep a safe distance from parked cars to avoid opening doors
  • Pay attention to the road and people around you
  • Avoid riding at night

Drivers can reduce the risk of accidents by doing the following:

  • Avoid making sudden turns, lane changes or vehicle movements
  • Proceed through intersections cautiously and make turns slowly and cautiously
  • Pay attention to the road and others on it including bicyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians

If drivers and cyclists work together to reduce the risks of accidents and injuries, road safety will greatly improve.  Unfortunately, those who have already been injured in bicycle accidents are facing recovery that can prove difficult and expensive.
