Bicycle safety at night

Riding a bicycle can be dangerous at any time, but some instances make it especially risky. For example, biking on the road or near traffic can result in a collision that proves fatal or leads to a devastating injury. Moreover, riding a bicycle near traffic at certain times, such as foggy weather or during the night, can be even more dangerous because of the poor visibility. As a bicyclist, it is vital for you to do what is necessary to protect yourself on the road and reduce the chances of a crash.

For starters, it is important to wear a proper helmet and ensure that you avoid traffic. For example, some areas may have bike trails near the road and these may be safer to ride on. You should also wear reflective clothing so that drivers have an easier time seeing you, which may help them avoid you. In fact, it may be a good idea to stay off of the road at night altogether and ride your bicycle when the chances of an accident are lower.

Sadly, you may be hit by a vehicle no matter how safe you are as a bicyclist. Whether someone is driving drunk or using their phone when they should be focusing on the road, driver negligence causes many bicycle accidents per year. When a crash does happen, bicyclists can be especially vulnerable and may be seriously hurt. Broken bones are not uncommon, and some bicyclists suffer massive head injuries or break their necks in these accidents.
