Cycle Safety!

Cycle Safety!
A record 46.9 million Americans are planning to head at least 50 miles from home this summer. More so this time of year, we share the road with cyclists. It is even more imperative to be cautious. You could come around a curve or over a hill and see cyclists. Along with cars being cautious, people on bicycles should also being doing their job. They also have to watch for traffic and know the appropriate hand signals. If we work together and be vigilant of everyone on the road, it really can cut down on unfortunate accidents. Bicyclists have the same responsibilities as drivers. They must obey all traffic laws the same as vehicles. If you’re passing a bicyclist, move to another lane if possible and give them plenty of room. It is important to be on the lookout for cycles at intersections and it they have to maneuver around potholes or debris on the road. Again, knowing the appropriate hand signals are key. Always be on the lookout for cyclists wherever you are!
