That is why it is important to exercise due care and abide by all traffic laws whether you are a driver or a bicyclist. If you’re driving, always look out for bicycle riders at all times. Also, do not engage in any non-driving activity that creates a potential distraction. If you’re a bicyclist, slow down or stay out of the way when you see a vehicle that’s about to turn on your lane.
