When you are on the road, you need to pay attention to fellow motorists as well as pedestrians, motorcyclists, road obstacles, and bicyclists. Treating each of these fellow travelers with respect and being aware of road obstacles is the key to avoiding a car crash. We at LCM Used Car Center have provided tips to drivers in East Petersburg, PA to help them avoid getting into an accident with a bicyclist.

A cyclist has the right to use a road. While they should try to stay on the side of the road, this is not always possible. This is why smart drivers should always keep a safe distance away from cyclists when driving behind them. You want to leave plenty of space and even signal when you pass them as well.

Driving slowly is another good thing to do when you encounter bicyclists on the road. It is also a good idea to never assume that bicyclists are aware of you. Be defensive and proactive around them, and you can avoid hitting them.
