    As a cyclist, you may feel you do not have a fighting chance on the road. Nevertheless, at Accident Advice Helpline, we believe that it is perfectly possible for cyclists and motorists to coexist.

    Safety tips for cyclists

    To keep the peace with motorists and enjoy your ride, follow these safety tips:

    • Follow the rules of the road
      As a cyclist, you have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. This means that you should stop at red lights and ride with the flow of traffic. If you fail to follow the rules of the road, you can be held liable for mishaps. If you cut a motorist off and cause an accident, the motorist will be entitled to claim compensation from you.
    • Disengage from road rage
      Road rage against cyclists is, unfortunately, a fact of life. If you encounter an angry driver, you should make every attempt to move out of the driver’s way.
    • Let bygones be bygones
      Carrying a chip on your shoulder can set you up for failure. If you have suffered a few close encounters and failed to shake off your resentment for the angry motorists you have been unlucky enough to encounter in the past, you may struggle to avoid confrontations.
    • Make sure you are visible
      Before taking to the roads, you should think about the steps you need to take to improve your visibility. For example, you may need to equip your bike with reflectors or make a habit of wearing bright clothing.
