Michael Schreyer Shares Safety Tips for Maryland Bicyclists in Honor of National Bike Safety Month

By Alpert Schreyer on May 30, 2012

Annapolis Bicycle Crash InjuryBicycling is certainly a favorite pastime of Maryland residents and is a fun, exciting way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and spend a leisurely summer day. Bicyclists, however, face unique hazards that others who share the road with them may not. Maryland personal injury lawyer Michael Schreyer understands how devastating a bicycle accident can be for a rider and how seriously it can impact a person’s life, largely because the injuries a bicyclist can sustain can be permanent and may require extensive medical treatment.

In order to help protect bicyclists during National Bike Safety Month in May and year round as well, Yahoo Finance offers these safety tips for biking enthusiasts for safer seasonal travel:

  1. Helmets: Every time you and your family ride, make it a rule to wear a helmet. Select a helmet that meets the safety standards of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and make sure it fits properly. Helmets should sit at the top of the head in a level position and not rock forward, backward, or side to side.
  2. The right bike: Ensure the bike you purchase is the proper size, fit, and type for you and for your child as well. Check to make sure the bicycle’s brakes are working properly, the gears shift smoothly, and the tires are secure and properly inflated.
  3. Ride safely: While bicycling, always stay alert and focused, follow all traffic laws, and be visible at all times so other motorists can see you. Motorists should also remember to share the road with bikers by always keeping an eye out for them and giving them ample space to ride.

Both bicyclists and motorists have the responsibility to drive cautiously and alertly in order to prevent a potentially life-threatening collision; however, an unsafe driver who does not take this responsibility seriously may still cause a crash.
