Spring is here, and bicycle season is in full swing. Not only is biking a cardiovascular workout, but you get to breathe in the full grandeur of the world around you and gain a new perspective. When you’re riding the roadways, you need to pay close attention to motorists, pedestrians and the flow of traffic. In addition, you need to be familiar with the current laws and responsibilities.
Most riders are sharply focused, but many drivers are preoccupied, distracted and not looking for bicyclists on the road. Thus, you need to recognize the telltale signs of an impending accident, so you can avoid it.
