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.
