How Can Bicyclists Avoid Getting Hit By A Car In Florida?

Question: How Can Broward County Bicyclists Avoid Getting Hit by a Car?

Answer: There are certain tips that every bicyclist should follow to avoid colliding with an automobile driver. The decision to wear a helmet may prevent critical brain injuries, but it will not prevent Broward County bicyclists from getting hit by a car.  Individuals who ride bicycles have the same rights as cars to the roadways, and cyclists must also obey the same traffic laws.

To avoid getting in an accident bicyclists should consider using a headlight, slow down, ride further to the left side of the bike lane, do not ride against the flow of traffic, do not stop in a car’s blind spot, and do not pass on the right side of a car. Residents in Broward County often don’t realize that cyclists have certain rights when it comes to sharing lanes on the highway. For example, when a lane is too narrow for a bicycle and a car to safely share, the bicyclist is entitled to use the use of the entire lane.
