Bike to Work Day is May 18 — Stay Safe!

May is National Bike Month, and May 18, 2017, is “Bike to Work Day.” Since an increasing number of bicycle crashes occur around the Los Angeles area, it is vital to pay attention to safety and to dedicate our awareness to the individuals most at risk while riding on the road.

Keep safe, everyone!

Biker Safety

With such crammed highways, it can be even more dangerous for bicyclists than motorists. To remain safe on the roads, it is vital to wear the proper equipment, including a helmet. When this gear is used, the likelihood of being fatally injured drops 37 percent. A bike should always be equipped with mirrors and reflectors as well.

Bikers must share the roads with automobiles, so riders must obey traffic signals and laws. It is vital to indicate turns and stops.

Why is it So Dangerous for Cyclists?

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, approximately 53 million vehicles drive on the country’s roads; several million of those are right here in Los Angeles. This number keeps growing, and as it does, so do the accident numbers.

Cyclists and pedestrians are experiencing more dangers in recent years, especially as drivers become more distracted by their smartphones. Pedestrians and cyclists are often sidetracked as well. What it all means is that an individual’s chances of injury are higher.
