Stay informed with these bicycle travel tips
Riding a bike is one of the oldest modes of transportation in the world. Even though they are not motorized, cyclists and their bikes could end up being victims in motor vehicle accident injuries.
Usually, bicycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers of cars and/or buses, who don’t give bikes enough room to ride safely. In the state of California, the Vehicle Code states that, for the most part, bicycles have the same rights as motor vehicle drivers.
Here are some common mistakes other motorists make that result in bike accident injuries:
- Failure to yield right-of-way
- Failure to check for cyclists before making a turn at an intersection
- Failure to stop at a sign or red light
- Bike lane intrusion
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
Keep these rules in mind when you are riding:
- Bike lanes must be used when you are moving slower than traffic
- Always travel with traffic (on the right side of the road)
- Absolutely no one can obstruct or block a bike lane
- Individual cities and counties control bike-on-sidewalk regulations
- Never ride your bike on the freeway
- Your bike must be small enough to stop and put one foot on the ground
- Use a white light at night on the front, and a red light on the back
- All bikes must have reflectors visible from all angles
- All bikes must have a permanent seat
