Insurers Offer 5 Bike Safety Tips

Bicycling for fun and transportation continues to grow in popularity as bike-friendly cities encourage more people to hit the road on two wheels – especially during the warmer months. With more bikes and cars sharing the pavement, cyclists and drivers need to be aware of evolving dangers on roads, according to the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).

Distracted driving and other threats have contributed to a spike in the frequency and severity of auto accidents nationwide. According to software developer TrueMotion, 92 percent of drivers use their smartphones while driving, and 71 percent text while driving. Bicyclists and pedestrians also are increasingly distracted by smartphones, putting everyone on the road in danger.

Simple modifications to bicyclist behaviors can prevent accidents and save lives.
