THE FOUR LAYERS of SAFETY

From the Ohio Bicycle Federation.

There is much more to learn about cycling than you were taught as a kid.

1. Don’t cause an accident: Follow the rules of road. About half of car-bike collisions are caused by the cyclist. A bicycle is a vehicle and should be driven according to the rules of the road. This means drive on the right (not the left or the sidewalk), stop for red lights & stop signs, and use lights at night. The reflectors on your bike help, but are not sufficient either for your safety or to comply with the law.

2. Prevent motorist mistakes: Be alert for potential accident situations and be assertive to stop a collision before it happens. Sometimes you have to use enough of the lane to discourage someone from passing where it is not safe.

3. Drive defensively to escape hazards: In case you can’t prevent another driver’s mistake, plan an “escape route” to avoid a crash. Don’t “hug the curb;” leave a safety zone at the edge of the road. Learn and practice emergency maneuvers, just in case.

4. Use safety equipment to reduce injury: A helmet and gloves will not prevent an accident but they may reduce injuries if one occurs. Don’t neglect your last line of defense.
