Bicycle Safety Tips Can Prevent Tragic Accidents

According to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle You Should Follow These Safety Tips To Prevent Accidents:

Bicycles are subject to the same laws as motor vehicles.  Riders of all ages should use  the following tips to help ensure safe and legal bike operation:

  • Ride with traffic.
  • Stop and look both ways before entering the street.
  • If you are a new or inexperienced rider, it’s a good idea to stop at all intersections.
  • Before turning, use hand signals and look all ways.
  • Be a responsible bicyclist – obey all traffic control devices and use proper hand signals.
  • Ride defensively – anticipate the actions of other road users and watch for road hazards.
  • Pass vehicles with extreme care – turning vehicles may not see you.
  • Be aware of motor vehicle blind spots while riding or when stopped at an intersection.
  • Walk your bicycle when you get into traffic situations beyond your cycling abilities.
  • Exercise great caution when riding in bus traffic – watch out for buses pulling to and from curbs and passengers getting on and off buses.
  • Park your bicycle so you do not block sidewalks, disabled accesses, building accesses, or emergency drives.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re injured in a bicycle accident.  I can help you understand your legal options.
