May Marks Beginning of Bicycle Safety Month

May 1, 2023

May marks the beginning of Bicycle Safety Month in California, a month-long campaign focused on promoting bicycle safety and raising awareness on the roads. California Personal Injury Attorneys recently highlighted this important national event on their website.

Local nonprofits and government agencies in California have organized a variety of events and activities throughout May. The aim of these initiatives is to educate the public about the importance of riding safely, as well as how to share the roads safely with bicyclists.

Bicycle accidents are unfortunately all too common, and the injuries they cause can be severe. In order to improve safety on the roads, both bicyclists and motorists need to share a responsibility for behaving safely.

The Avian Law Group emphasizes that bicyclists must be sure to ride in the appropriate lanes, follow traffic signals, and be prepared for unexpected events, such as potholes, sudden lane changes, or opened car doors. Wearing an appropriately fitting helmet is also essential and can greatly reduce the severity of head injuries in an accident.

For motorists, it’s important to maintain a safe distance from bicyclists and give them plenty of space on the road. Drivers should also be careful when opening car doors and yielding to bicyclists when turning.

By sharing the road responsibly, both bicyclists and drivers can improve safety on the roads. Bicyclists can take advantage of Bicycle Safety Month in California to learn more about how to stay safe, and motorists can refresh their knowledge of how to share the roads effectively with bicyclists.

The Avian Law Group supports organizations like the California Bicycle Coalition and their efforts to promote bicycle safety. Let’s work together to make sure the roads are a safe place for all users.
