How to Ride Your Bicycle Safely in High-Traffic Areas
People love riding their bikes. Whether it’s for fun, exercise, or commuting to work, biking is a fun, healthy way to get around. Studies have shown that commuters who ride their bikes have a higher degree of happiness and contentment than those who use other commuting methods in the city.
Bicyclists must share the road with cars, trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles. Although all vehicles must abide by the same traffic rules, cyclists often don’t receive the same duty of care as other motorists, leading to severe injury accidents.
Staying safe on your bicycle when sharing the road with cars requires practicing safe riding techniques. If you have been hit by a car while riding your bicycle, contact the San Francisco bike accident lawyers at Berg Injury Lawyers to help you with your case.
