What is bike awareness?

Montana bicyclists have a lot to worry about every time they're on the road. Many of these concerns derive from the fact that they and their bikes are difficult to see. At the Law Firm of Edmiston & Colton, we work to bring awareness to issues unique to bicyclists like you, and help those whose lack of visibility has caused harm.

As most drivers and bicyclists alike know, bikes are hard to spot on the road. They're small, don't take up much space, and bike riders can easily dart into a car's blind spot without either of you realizing the danger until it's too late. This is why bike awareness is important. It's the responsibility of drivers of larger cars to look out for you, since they're more protected. Drivers should always check before making lane changes and keep an eye on their blind spot.

Learning proper road-sharing behaviors is also vital. It isn't uncommon for bicycle riders to feel crowded, or to even be driven off of the roads for fear of their own safety. The thin painted line dividing cars from bikes can be anxiety-inducing to anyone, especially when combined with low visibility.

Unfortunately, the rate at which bicycle accidents occur is still high. This is why so many agencies work tirelessly to promote bike visibility. If you'd like to learn more about bike awareness, or if a lack of bike awareness has led to you becoming involved in an accident, visit our web page for bike crash prevention and visibility.
