Making Things Safer for Bicyclists

Bicyclists are often in a vulnerable position when they are riding on the road, especially when they have to share the road with motor vehicles. While some streets will have a bike lane, there are other precautions that need to be taken so that the bicyclist can be safer.

One of the most important things to give a bicyclist is space. When passing people on bikes, allow at least three feet worth of space whenever possible. At the same time, you want to drive slowly when you are coming across a bicyclist.

Bicyclists also have responsibilities when they are on the road. As someone on a bike, you are responsible to keep yourself safe when you are on a bike because you are very vulnerable. Among the things you want to do to keep yourself safe while on a bike is to stop at lights and pay attention to the road.
