Distracted driving is extremely dangerous for motorists and for cyclists. In order to reduce and eliminate all unnecessary accidents, and it is estimated that some 80% of all cycling accidents are avoidable, it is essential for cyclists and automobile drivers to drive with full awareness and concentration. In fact, some studies indicate that texting while driving is more dangerous than driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Cyclists are advised to drive with as much awareness as possible, keeping both eyes on the road and paying attention to the environment at all times. Always drive defensively.
Unfortunately, even when a cyclist is fully attuned to roadway conditions, motorists may drive recklessly. A bicycle is no match for a car, truck or SUV. Many motorists do not understand that cyclists have the right to share the road. Knowingly or unknowingly, motorists bully cyclists.
