    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Sleat

    According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, cycling accidents accounted for over 19,000 road accidents in 2011 alone. If these numbers are to decrease, motorists must take responsibility for their actions, and avoid jumping behind the wheel if they are under the influence of alcohol or are suffering from fatigue. It is not only motorists who need to behave responsibly. Cyclists should also take preventative measures to reduce their risk of being involved in accidents on the roads.

    Reducing the risk of accidents on the roads

    To stay out of harm’s way, cyclists must follow the rules of the road. Under section 60 of the Highway Code, all cyclists are legally required to equip their bikes with the correct lights when riding at night: they must have a white light at the front of their bikes, and a red light and reflector at the rear.

    The Highway Code also stresses the importance of proper cycling attire. Bright or light clothing should help cyclists to increase their visibility in broad daylight, while reflective clothing and/or high-visibility accessories should help cyclists to increase their visibility in the dark. While the law does not require cyclists to wear a cycle helmet, the British Medical Association strongly advocates the use of such protective headgear.
