Defensive Bicycling Tips for Riding in Traffic [pdf]

Be Cautious On Sidewalks
More bicycle accidents occur on sidewalks than in the street. This is because drivers often do not see bicyclists on sidewalks when making turns or exiting driveways. Be alert and ride defensively when you ride on sidewalks. Knowing and following the rules of the road is not enough to keep you from being involved in a crash. Unfortunately, there are drivers who either do not know, understand or follow the rules. Knowing what other drivers do wrong, and watching for their mistakes, can help you reduce your chances of being in a crash.
