When You Don't Look for Bicyclists

Bicycle accidents often happen quickly, and they usually happen because drivers are not looking for these pedestrians. When drivers do not look for these pedestrians on the streets, even after a car is parked and a driver is getting ready to exit the vehicle, accidents can happen. It is important to always look for bicyclists on the road to ensure their safety and yours, and to ensure that no one will be injured in an avoidable accident.
