Safety Precautions for Local Bicycling Enthusiasts

Some simple rules of the road can help keep bicyclists safe when they venture out for a two-wheel excursion. Following are some tips courtesy of Buffalo attorney John Feroleto:

1.) Wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet. Protect your brain, save your life.

2.) See and be seen. Whether daytime, dawn, dusk, foul weather or at night, you need to be seen by others. Wearing white has not been shown to make you more visible. Rather, always wear neon, fluorescent or other bright colors when riding day or night. Also wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights. Remember, just because you can see a driver doesn’t mean the driver can see you.
