This page shows you real ways you can get hit and real ways to avoid them. This is a far cry from normal bicycle safety guides, which usually tell you little more than to wear your helmet and to follow the law. But consider this for a moment: Wearing a helmet will do absolutely nothing to prevent you from getting hit by a car. Sure, helmets might help you if you get hit, but your 1 goal should be to avoid getting hit in the first place. Plenty of cyclists are killed by cars even though they were wearing helmets.
Ironically, if they had ridden without helmets, yet followed the advice on this page, they might still be alive today. Don't fall for the myth that wearing a helmet is the first and last word in biking safety. In truth, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's better to not get hit. That's what real bicycle safety is about. The other problem with the "follow the law" message is that people may think that's all they need to do. But following the law is not enough to keep you safe, not by a long shot.
The law tells you to ride as far to the right as is practicable. But if you ride too far to the right, someone exiting a parked car could open their door right in front of you, and you'll be less visible to motorists pulling out of driveways and parking lots, and motorists coming from behind may pass you way too closely in the same lane because you didn't make them change lanes.
In each of these cases you were following the law, but you made it easier for yourself to get hit. This page doesn't focus on the law, it focuses on how to not get hit by cars.
Now let's see how to avoid getting hit. Ten Ways to Not Get Hit. This is the most common way to get hit or almost get hit. Notice that there are actually two possible kinds of collisions here: Either you're in front of the car and the car hits you, or the car pulls out in front of you and you slam into it.
If you're riding at night, you absolutely should be using a front headlight. It's required by law, anyway. Even for daytime riding, a bright white light that has a flashing mode can make you more visible to motorists who might otherwise Right Cross you.
Look for the new LED headlights which last ten times as long on a set of batteries as old-style lights. And headlamps mounted on your head or helmet are the best, because then you can look directly at the driver to make sure they see your light.
If you can't make eye contact with the driver, wave your arm. It's easier for them to see your arm going left and right than it is for them to see a bicycle coming straight towards them. You could also use a loud horn like the Air Zound to get drivers' attention.
If it looks like the driver is about to pull out without seeing you, yell "Hey! Incidentally, many countries require bells on bicycles, but the U. If you can't make eye contact with the driver especially at night , slow down so much that you're able to completely stop if you have to. Sure, it's inconvenient, but it beats getting hit. Doing this has saved my life on too many occasions to count. You're probably used to riding in the "A" line in the picture, very close to the curb, because you're worried about being hit from behind.
But take a look at the car. When that driver is looking down the road for traffic, he's not looking in the bike lane or the area closest to the curb; he's looking in the middle of the lane, for other cars. The farther left you are such as in "B" , the more likely the driver will see you.
There's an added bonus here: In short, it gives you some options. Because if you stay all the way to the right and they pull out, your only "option" may be to run right into the driver's side door. Using this method has saved me on three occasions in which a motorist ran into me slowly as they hit their brakes and I wasn't hurt, and in which I definitely would have slammed into the driver's side door had I not moved left. You might worry that moving left makes you more vulnerable to cars coming from behind.
But the stats say you're far more likely to get hit by a car at an intersection ahead of you that can't see you, than from a car behind you which can see you clearly. So while both positions have risk, you generally reduce your risk by riding a little farther left.
Your actual lane position depends on road conditions. On fast roadways with few cross streets and thus less chances to get hit at intersections , you'll ride farther to the right. On slow roads with many cross streets, you'll ride farther left. See lane position for more about this.
A driver opens his door right in front of you. You run right into it if you can't stop in time. This kind of crash is more common than you might think: It's the second-most common car-bike crash in Toronto, source and the 1 crash Santa Barbara. Ride to the left. Ride far enough to the left that you won't run into any door that's opened unexpectedly. You may be wary about riding so far into the lane that cars can't pass you easily, but you're more likely to get doored by a parked car if you ride too close to it than you are to get hit from behind by a car which can see you clearly.
If you're riding at night, a headlight is absolutely essential. It's required by law , anyway. Slow down enough that you're able to stop completely if necessary. Don't ride on the sidewalk in the first place. Crossing between sidewalks is a fairly dangerous maneuver. If you do it on the left-hand side of the street, you risk getting slammed as per the diagram.
If you do it on the right-hand side of the street, you risk getting slammed by a car behind you that's turning right. Sidewalk riding also makes you vulnerable to cars pulling out of parking lots or driveways. And you're threatening to pedestrians on the sidewalk, who could get hurt if you hit them. These kinds of accidents are hard to avoid, which is a compelling reason to not ride on the sidewalk in the first place. In addition, riding on the sidewalk is illegal in some places.
Some special sidewalks are safe to ride on. If the sidewalk is really long no need to frequently cross streets , and free of driveways and peds, then there's little risk to you and others. Just make sure when you do cross a street or driveway that you slow down considerably and that you check the traffic in all directions, especially behind you if you're riding with the flow of traffic. Even worse, you could be hit by a car on the same road coming at you from straight ahead of you.
They had less time to see you and take evasive action because they're approaching you faster than normal because you're going towards them rather than away from them. Don't ride against traffic. Ride with traffic, in the same direction. Riding against traffic may seem like a good idea because you can see the cars that are passing you, but it's not. One study showed that riding the wrong way was three times as dangerous as riding the right way, and for kids, the risk is seven times greater.
Nearly one-fourth of crashes involve cyclists riding the wrong way. That idea is just wrong. Second, the problem with wrong-way biking is that it promotes crashes, while right-way biking does not.
Don't stop in the blind spot. Simply stop behind a car, instead of to the right of it, as per the diagram below. This makes you very visible to traffic on all sides. It's impossible for the car behind you to avoid seeing you when you're right in front of it. Another option is to stop at either point A in the diagram above where the first driver can see you , or at point B, behind the first car so it can't turn into you, and far enough ahead of the second car so that the second driver can see you clearly.
It does no good to avoid stopping to the right of the first car if you're going to make the mistake of stopping to the right of the second car. If you chose spot A, then ride quickly to cross the street as soon as the light turns green. Don't look at the motorist to see if they want to go ahead and turn. If you're in spot A and they want to turn, then you're in their way. Why did you take spot A if you weren't eager to cross the street when you could? When the light turns green, just go, and go quickly.
But make sure cars aren't running the red light on the cross street, of course. If you chose spot B, then when the light turns green, DON'T pass the car in front of you -- stay behind it, because it might turn right at any second. If it doesn't make a right turn right away, it may turn right into a driveway or parking lot unexpectedly at any point.
Don't count on drivers to signal! Assume that a car can turn right at any time. NEVER pass a car on the right! But try to stay ahead of the car behind you until you're through the intersection, because otherwise they might try to cut you off as they turn right. While we're not advocating running red lights, notice it is in fact safer to run the red light if there's no cross traffic, than it is to wait legally at the red light directly to the right of a car, only to have it make a right turn right into you when the light turns green.
Remember that someone can fling open the passenger door unexpectedly as they exit the car. Also remember that if you pass on the right and traffic starts moving again unexpectedly, you may suffer 3, the Red Light of Death. Note that when you're tailing a slow-moving vehicle, ride behind it, not in its blind spot immediately to the right of it. Even if you're not passing a car on the right, you could still run into it if it turns right while you're right next to it.
Give yourself enough room to brake if it turns. Look behind you before turning right. Here's your opportunity to avoid hitting cyclists who violate tip 1 above and try to pass you on the right. Look behind you before making a right-hand turn to make sure a bike isn't trying to pass you. Also remember that they could be coming up from behind you on the sidewalk while you're on the street. Even if it's the other cyclist's fault for trying to pass you on the right when you make a right turn and have them slam into you, it won't hurt any less when they hit you.
When you come off the sidewalk to cross the street, you're invisible to turning motorists. If you're riding at night, you should absolutely use a front headlight. It's required by law in most countries, anyway.
Wear something bright, even during the day. It may seem silly, but bikes are small and easy to see through even during the day. Yellow or orange reflective vests really make a big difference. Reflective leg bands are also easy and inexpensive. Don't overtake slow-moving vehicles on the right. Doing so makes you invisible to left-turning motorists at intersections. Passing on the right means that the vehicle you're passing could also make a right turn right into you, too.
Never, ever move left without looking behind you first. Some motorists like to pass cyclists within mere inches, so moving even a tiny bit to the left unexpectedly could put you in the path of a car. Practice holding a straight line while looking over your shoulder until you can do it perfectly.
Most new cyclists tend to move left when they look behind them, which of course can be disastrous. Don't swerve in and out of the parking lane if it contains any parked cars. You might be tempted to ride in the parking lane where there are no parked cars, dipping back into the traffic lane when you encounter a parked car. This puts you at risk for getting nailed from behind. Instead, ride a steady, straight line in the traffic lane.
If you don't have one, get one from a bike shop or an online shop right now. There are models that fit on your handlebars, helmet, or glasses, as you prefer. You should always physically look back over your shoulder before moving left, but having a mirror still helps you monitor traffic without constantly having to look behind you. Never move left without signaling. Just put your left arm straight out.
Be sure to check your mirror or loo behind you before signaling since a car passing too closely can take your arm out. Get a rear light. If you're riding at night, you absolutely should use a flashing red rear light. These kind of lights typically take two AA batteries, which last for months something like hours. I can't stress this item enough: If you ride at night, get a rear light! Wear a reflective vest or a safety triangle.
High quality reflective gear makes you a lot more visible even in the day time, not just at night. I had a friend ride away from me while wearing one during the day, and when she was about a quarter mile away, I couldn't see her or her bike at all, but the vest was clearly visible. At night the difference is even greater. Also, when you hear a motorist approaching, straightening up into a vertical position will make your reflective gear more noticeable.
Ride on streets whose outside lane is so wide that it can easily fit a car and a bike side by side. That way a car may zoom by you and avoid hitting you, even if they didn't see you! The slower a car is going, the more time the driver has to see you.
I navigate the city by going through neighborhoods. Learn how to do this. Use back streets on weekends. The risk of riding on Friday or Saturday night is much greater than riding on other nights because all the drunks are out driving around. If you do ride on a weekend night, make sure to take neighborhood streets rather than arterials.
Get a mirror and use it. If it looks like a car doesn't see you, hop off your bike and onto the sidewalk. Trust me, once you've ridden a mirror for a while, you'll wonder how you got along without it. If you're not convinced, after you've used your mirror for a month, take it off your bike and ride around and notice how you keep glancing down to where your mirror was, and notice how unsafe you feel without it.
Don't hug the curb. This is counter-intuitive, but give yourself a little space between yourself and the curb. That gives you some room to move into in case you see a large vehicle in your mirror approaching without moving over far enough to avoid you. Also, when you hug the curb tightly you're more likely to suffer a right cross from motorists who can't see you. I've been a bicycle commuter for about 13 years now and I think you've nailed it very nicely.
I've ridden the same route for over 6 years but failed to follow your advice about busy roads [and about not passing on the right! During that time traffic got worse and worse while I became more and more complacent. We were both going about the same speed so it was the pavement that did the hurting, but we were doing about 30mph. My helmet was crushed from the impact and I broke 3 ribs along with the usual road rash and a perforation in one arm from some road debris.
Obviously I was lucky, the helmet worked so well, I didn't even gat a headache. But it points out the need to reassess your route periodically and be willing to change your route accordingly. I just read your BicycleSafe article. I've been riding in cities mainly Cleveland and Winnipeg for 45 years or so. I've experienced all of the types of incident you describe.
Fortunately I only got knocked off the bike once many years ago - a left cross in a thunderstorm going too fast with a gale behind me - dummy! Bike brakes don't work as well in the rain and drivers don't have the visibility. I'd encourage cyclists to keep the speed below about 15 MPH in city traffic. At that speed, I find I have the reaction time and stopping distance to handle most emergencies. Thanks for posting the article. I bet you save a few lives!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your Bicycle Safety site. I biked to work for the first time here in S. So, I totally appreciate that you took the time to put bicyclesafe. The Unknown City , June Thanks for your site. I just experienced the Right Hook Part 1 yesterday. Your site makes me feel better knowing that these things happen to bicyclists everywhere.
Your website is great! I've been biking to work every day for a year and a half, and I really wish I had seen your site first. I'm referring people especially those who have never bike commuted to your site now as I'm coordinating a Bike to Work Day event at my office. Your approach to safe, defensive bike riding and the illustrations you use are greatly appreciated! Stickers help you be seen by cars, even during the day. Here are some sites selling reflective stickers and tape:.
Ken Kifer's Bike Safety pages. Urban Cycling's directory of bike safety advice from various sources. The Art of Urban Cycling. The Urban Cycling Manual dismantles the urban cycling experience and slides it under the microscope, piece by piece. Author Robert Hurst discusses how, in America, bicyclists were an afterthought at best when our cities were planned and built, and today are left to navigate through a hard and unsympathetic world that was not made for them--like rats in a sewer.
Yet, with the proper attitude and a bit of knowledge, urban cyclists will thrive in this hostile environment. The primary concern is safety, but this book goes well beyond the usual tips and how-to, diving in to the realms of history, psychology, sociology, and economics.
It empowers readers with the Big Picture of urban cycling--and gives urban cyclists many useful insights to consider while pedaling the next commute or grocery run. Riding a bike in the city will never be the same.
Our sister site has everything we know about bicycle safety statistics. That's it, that's all we have, no need to ask if we have anything more.
Everybody asks about this one, so here's the answer. If you're about to send me an email telling me how stupid the advice on this site is, please save yourself the trouble. Trust me, I've heard all the arguments before ad nauseum and I simply disagree.
I never write to EC websites to complain that I don't like their advice, so there's no need for you to complain about mine. Here's more about the the difference of opinion for those wondering what the fuss is about. I'm happy to share this information with others at no cost. Permission to reprint is given freely, subject to the following provisions:. The contents of BicycleSafe. I have developed this page to provide what I believe is very good advice to help you avoid getting hit by cars.
Naturally, I believe if you follow this advice you will be much less likely to suffer a collision than if you ignore it. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety. One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they start biking is to take the exact same routes they used when they were driving. It's usually better to take different streets with fewer and slower cars.
Sure, cyclists have a right to the road, but that's a small consolation when you're dead. Consider how far you can take this strategy: If you learn your routes well, you'll find that in many cities you can travel through neighborhoods to get to most places, only crossing the busiest streets rather than traveling on them.
Well, if it's so obvious, then why do most night-time cyclists ride without lights? Headlights are just as important as rear lights. And modern headlights use LED's so the batteries last ten times longer than old-school headlights.
It's often safer to take the whole lane, or at least ride a little bit to the left, rather than hug the right curb. You might worry about slowing down the traffic behind you if you take the lane. But if you're on the kind of street where you've got cars blocked up behind you or constantly changing lanes to get around you, you're probably on the wrong street and should find a quieter neighborhood street. Taking the lane works especially well in most traffic circles.
The traffic generally moves slower so it's easy to keep up, riding in the lane makes you more visible to motorists, and taking the lane prevents motorists from right hooking you as they exit the circle. It's perfectly legal for you to take the lane when appropriate.
Texas State Law and the laws of most other states says you have to ride as far to the right as is "practicable". Here are some things that make it impracticable to ride to the extreme right:. There are risks to both riding to the extreme right as well as taking the lane. Whether you ride to the right or take the lane depends on the conditions of the roadway you're on.
On narrow roads with lots of intersections, ride farther to the left. It's not always better to take the lane or to hug the curb; it depends on the roadway you're on.
You're less likely to get hit when your movement doesn't take motorists by surprise. Let them know you're about to turn or move left or right by signalling with your arm. Point your left arm out to move left, and point your right arm out to move right.
You might have learned an old way of signaling a right turn with your left arm, but drivers have no idea what that means, so it's useless. Signal a right turn with your right arm. Before signaling left, be sure to check your mirror or look behind you before signaling since a car passing too closely can take your arm out. It's more important to hear what's around you when you're biking than when you're driving.
Whether you want to ride with headphones is your choice, but doing so does increase your risk. Similarly, texting or talking with a mobile phone raises the risk level. When you're mixing with car traffic, the fewer distractions the better. Also, you'll want both hands free in case you have to brake suddenly.
It's often helpful to ride in such a way that motorists won't hit you even if they don't see you. You're not trying to be invisible, you're trying to make it irrelevant whether cars see you or not. If you ride in such a way that a car has to see you to take action to avoid hitting you e.
But if you stay out of their way, then you won't get hit even if they didn't notice you were there. On very fast roads cars have less time to see you because they're approaching so fast.
Of course, you should avoid fast roads in the first place if at all possible, unless there's plenty of room for a car and a bike side by side. And if there IS such room, then on fast roadways, you can practice invisibility by riding to the extreme right.
If you're far enough right that you're not in the part of the lane the cars are in, then they'll zoom by and won't hit you, even if they never saw you. It's a good idea to signal a left turn, but it's a better idea to make your left turn at a time or place where there aren't cars behind you that could hit you while you're stopped and waiting to make that turn.
You can hang out in the middle of the street, stopped, with your left arm out, waiting to make your turn, but you're counting on cars behind you to see you and stop. If they don't see you, you're in trouble. Naturally we don't advocate running red lights, but if you're the kind of person who does, then apply the invisibility principle when deciding on whether to run a particular light: Could any cross traffic possibly hit me if I were invisible?
If yes, then absolutely don't do it. Our intent has always been to provide the best open site with the most useful features for our players.
