BICYCLE SAFETY

Whether you are the occasional bike rider or a cycling enthusiast, there are many precautions you can take to ensure you’re riding safely. Attorney Steven Wingo is also an avid cyclist who has offered several bicycle safety tips below for you to consider when riding—whether in the city, beach, neighborhood or mountains. If you have sustained an injury in a bike accident, do not hesitate to call his Ocala law firm!

RIDE SAFELY & ARRIVE AT YOUR DESTINATION

  • Always wear a helmet. While there are no helmet laws for adults in Florida, wearing a helmet while biking is advisable. If you fall, you can protect your head from serious trauma.
  • Always be aware and look out for yourself. When you are on a bike, you may not always be visible to motorists. Additionally, motorists can be careless, which can result in injury to you.
  • Ride on the safest streets possible—including streets with the lowest volume of traffic, wide lanes, and few obstacles. Try to use bike lanes when riding in busier areas. If you have a choice on where to ride, safety should be a consideration in your choice.
  • Make yourself visible. Wear protective gear and reflective clothing; use bicycle lights.
  • Slow down at all intersections, even when you have the right of way.
  • Follow all applicable bicycle laws.
  • Be aware when riding on the right-hand side of motorists turning right.
