Bicycling with Traffic
Bicycles get a rider from point A to point B, but this oversimplification misses by far the beauty and enjoyment of the cycling experience. As mountain bikers, road bikers, and off-road cyclists will attest, the bicycle is an excellent way to see the outdoors. Moreover, it is also an excellent means of transportation that opens you up to the world around you in a way that no car can.
Most people consider the disadvantage of cycling to be the deficit of speed. The far more troubling disadvantage, however, is the weight disadvantage versus a car. If you are involved in a bicycle collision with a car you can be seriously hurt. In cases like this, you need the help of an experienced Kenosha bicycle accident attorney. Contact Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today to discuss your case.
Safe Cycling Strategies
When surrounded by cars that could run into you at any time, potentially causing immeasurable damage to you, you realize how little control you have over the situation. The only thing that a cyclist can do is attempt to employ an effective strategy for being seen and communicating their every move. Some tips to stay safe while biking include:
- Keep both hands on your handlebars (except when signaling)
- Do not weave in and out of traffic
- Do not “hitch a ride” by holding on to a motorized vehicle
- At night, your bike should be equipped with a light in the front and back
Unfortunately, no matter how cautious you can be, you can still suffer in an accident due to a careless or inattentive driver.
As a cyclist, you must do everything in your power to avoid a collision. If you are involved in an accident, it is likely the fault of a negligent driver, and you may need the help of an aggressive Kenosha bicycle accident lawyer to defend your rights.
