Bicyclists: Strategies for Reducing Risk

  • Drivers should not park or drive in marked bicycle lanes.
  • Before opening a door, drivers (and passengers) should check for bicyclists in the adjacent lane.
  • Check for bicyclists before turning left at an intersection. Like motorcycles, bicycles are small and can be less-visible on the road.
  • Look to your right before making a right turn to ensure that you do not strike a bicyclist who is traveling on your right. In congested traffic, a bicyclist might be able to travel faster than a motor vehicle driver.
