Safety tips promoted during National Bike Month

Posted on May 10, 2016 3:31 pm under Bicycle Accidents

It is important to remember basic biking safety tips before heading outside for National Bike Month. The month of May is dedicated to bicycle enthusiasts and intended to encourage non-cyclists to consider the benefits of cycling.

Bicyclists should fully inspect their bikes to prevent possible malfunctions during rides. Many states, including Wisconsin, also recommend bicyclists wear a helmet for further protection. When riding on the road, bikers should not ride against the flow of traffic; doing so is both dangerous and illegal. Bicyclists should use their hands to signal to drivers where they are headed, and give sufficient space when passing parked vehicles to prevent crashing into doors that may open suddenly.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a bicycle accident, the lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® may be able to help you receive the reparations you deserve, especially if reckless drivers were involved. Learn more about the options available to you by calling (414) 271-0900.
