On November 26, in an effort to promote road safety, Linus Bike advises bike riders everywhere to practice road safety when riding their bikes to work or for leisure. Linus Bike offers tips on road safety to maximize avoidance of roadside accidents.
According to an article published by News Star, “in the wake of a number of fatality collisions recently across the state involving bicyclists and pedestrians, AAA Oklahoma is urging motorists to focus on the task of driving to help avoid preventable crashes. In Oklahoma last year, there were 609 pedestrians struck by vehicles; 47 of those died. Also last year in the state, 309 bicyclists were involved in crashes.”
“Road safety can go a long way when cyclists and motorists are aware of each other on the roads,” comments Jason Latty, Sales Representative for commuter bikes manufacturer Linus Bike. “When practicing road safety, cyclists can avoid accidents when sharing the roads with cars.”
Latty advises cyclists, “When sharing the road with automobiles, cyclists should always wear a helmet, stop at major intersections and wear reflective gear when riding at night. The rules of the road are not just meant for motorists. Cyclists should respect the road if they want to share it.”
Latty continues by stating, “Motorists that are mindful of cyclists crossing the street and signal when making turns can help protect cyclists,” comments Latty. “Cyclists are not always aware that your vehicle is near them. Cyclists have blind spots as well so make sure to avoid cutting them off and causing an accident.”
