Injuries sustained in a bicycle-auto collision can take a toll on a person’s financial, physical, and emotional well-being. 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 which 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. You can also exaggerate eye contact or hand signals to let other drivers see you.
