AVOID USING YOUR CELLPHONE

IMG_0160-e1572180804320-252x300Do not use your cellphone while you are riding your bike. If you need to use your cellphone, pull over and get on the sidewalk or stop somewhere free from moving traffic. The chances of a bike rider being crashed into by a car or any other moving vehicle are practically nil when they are on the sidewalk or clear of traffic. A motorist may not see a bike rider that has stopped beside a parked car or even behind a typical city obstacle like a light pole, dumpsters, etc. Furthermore, using your cellphone while riding a bicycle greatly reduces your ability to react to any sudden obstacles or maneuvers by motorists that involve dodging or braking. Keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the handlebars of your bike is equally important as when driving a car. Staying alert and avoiding distraction by your cellphone are key to lowering your chances of being in a bicycle accident.
