Your chances of getting hit by a car while cycling are smaller than you might think. Here’s how to prevent the most common types of automobile-bike collisions.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

This article does a good job of examing three of the most common bicycle accident scenarios:

  1. Blown Stop Signs
  2. The “Left Cross”: Left hand turn of a motor vehicle into the oncoming path of a cyclist; and
  3. The “Right Hook”: Abrubt right hand turn in front of a cyclist.

It breaks down tactics bike riders can use to avoid these collisions.  As a bike accident lawyer , I think we need more of this type of information for the bike riding public to promote cycling safety.
