How Can I Prevent Having a Bicycle Accident?
When riding your bicycle (especially at night), you should take specific, cautionary duty to protect you and your bike. Follow these simple safety tips found in GDOT’s Georgia Bike Sense: A Guide for Cyclists & Motorists.
- Always wear a helmet
- Wear bright colors- neon colored clothes work best
- Use headlights and taillights- a white colored headlight and a red colored taillight
- Ride in a predictable manner- no weaving in and out of traffic
- Interact and communicate with motorists- use hand signals, eye contact, etc.
Remember, bicycles are vehicles too here in Georgia! So while cars, trucks and motorcycles should take care to look out for bicycles, cyclists should also be diligent about following Georgia traffic laws.
