Just like drivers are expected to be responsible and abide by all traffic laws, bicyclists also have to behave reasonably and responsibly. If you’re driving, always look out for bicycle riders at all times. Also, do not engage in any non-driving activity which could turn your attention from the road. For bicyclists, use the bike lane. Slow down or stay out of the way when you see a vehicle that’s about to turn on your way.
