You have to watch this great cycling safety video from England that points out the very important fact that if drivers are only watching for other cars and trucks they will NEVER see cyclists (or pedestrians).
This phenomena dovetails with my many years of experience handling bike crash cases, where the defendant drivers always say the NEVER SAW the cyclist.
The key to great bicyclist and pedestrian safety is to constantly remind drivers that they need to be on the lookout for bicyclists and pedestrians.
A very simple thing for a motorist to do — and doing this simple thing will save lives.
Please remind every driver you know that they need to be vigilant for ALL road users: cars, trucks, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
Thanks for watching and reading!
