Bicyclists, often like pedestrians, are overlooked on the road. Even if you wear the right gear — helmet, reflectors, etc. — you are in harm’s way and left to the skill and judgment of the drivers sharing the road with you. When a bicyclist is involved in an accident, the result can be catastrophic and fatal.
Studies have shown that drivers see other drivers — but they rarely pay attention to the bicyclists sharing the road with them. In fact, one study showed that only 11 percent of drivers actually saw a bike before they hit it.
