The warmth of summer means that there are many more pedestrians walking and riding bicycles. And there are also more children running around on streets and in intersections. With that in mind, it is important to review are considered vehicles. As such, riders are expected to follow the rules of the road as if they were driving a car. Make sure to obey all traffic signals and signs. That also includes follow lane regulations (such as not turning left from the right lane).
It is also a good idea to remain visible to cars. If you have to ride your bike somewhere at night, make sure to wear reflective clothing or attach a light to your bicycle. Visibility is also a consideration during the day. Never pass a car on the right and never ride against traffic because automobile drivers may not notice you in those places.
Before you get onto a bicycle make sure that you check your bicycle. Verify that your tires are fully inflated and that your brakes are in good working order. Make sure to adjust your seat so that you can sit comfortably which will take pressure off of your joints.
The best advice that you should follow is to wear a helmet. In 2010, 429 people died in bicycle accidents because they were not wearing a helmet. That is compared to 94 people who died in bicycle accidents who were wearing helmets. It is not enough to just wear a helmet, either, but you must make sure that it is properly fitted to protect your brain.
Following this instruction may save your life. But riding a bicycle is still dangerous. If you are injured from a car accident while you are on a bike, then it is important to have the support of a legal professional.
