Cyclist Safety Tips from an Accident Lawyer

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, thousands of cyclists are injured every year on Florida roadways. All it takes is one distracted driver looking at a text message, and the consequences could be dire.
Motorists and cyclists need to work together and share the road responsibly. If you are involved in a cyclist accident, you should contact an accident lawyer to review your options.

Here are some tips to avoid cycling accidents:


  1. Be aware of your surroundings. Motorists may not see you, so it is important that you see them.
  2. Always wear a helmet and make sure it is properly fitted and secured to your head.
  3. Consider wearing brightly colored clothing or reflective tape to make yourself more visible to motorists.
  4. Cycle in designated bicycle paths where available.
  5. Obey the rules of the road.


  1. Pay attention, don’t look at texts or emails while driving. Those few seconds are all it takes for a tragedy to occur.
  2. If you see cyclists, reduce your speed and give them some room.
  3. Obey the rules of the road.
  4. Share the roadway.
