Spring is on it’s way, is your family ready for the outdoors?
We know it doesn’t feel like it, but Spring is just around the corner. Many people love the outdoors, and choose bicycle riding as their number one form of transportation. In fact, the number of people who ride their bike to work has increase more than 150 percent since 2000. One third of biking accidents happen when a car collides with a bike. Head injuries make up about 15 percent of injuries in accidents. Although laws have been enacted and bike lanes are now in streets, drivers’ negligence and inattentiveness collisions still occur. The a few of the most common collisions are when a driver turns directly in front of a biker, fails to yield at an intersection, or impaired by alcohol or drugs.
In order to avoid accidents, cyclists should always rife defensively. Just because laws are in place does not mean drivers will abide by the right of way rules regarding bicycles. When on the road, cyclists should pretend they cannot be seen and wear protective gear.
