Increased Awareness for Bicyclists Necessary

The warm weather in British Columbia this summer has contributed to an abundance of cyclists out on the roads. From marked bike paths to busy streets, drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians can all help increase their awareness to avoid accidents.

For cyclists, wearing the proper safety gear, such as a helmet, can greatly reduce the risk of a major injury if involved in an accident. Even wearing brighter clothing, watching for distracted drivers, and using the proper turn signals is also helpful when traveling on roads without a marked bike path. Making eye contact with pedestrians and drivers is also important when traveling across densely populated streets.
