How to safely commute to class on your bicycle

As a University of Georgia student, it won't be long before you realize the benefits of commuting to and from class on a bicycle. Not only does it save you time, but it also reduces yor carbon footprint when you drive less and bike more.

Commuting on your bicycle has many benefits, but it's also dangerous. Here are some steps you can take to maintain your safety:

  • Follow the rules of the road. Just as with drivers of motor vehicles, you must follow the rules of the road. This includes stop signs, yield signs and traffic lights, among others.
  • Beware of parked vehicles. Moving vehicles are dangerous, but the same can be said for those that are parked. For example, if someone opens a car door into your path of travel, you won't have much time to get out of the way.
  • Wear the appropriate safety gear. Forget about how you'll look and instead focus on your safety. The right gear can make the difference between walking away from an accident unscathed and suffering a serious injury.
  • Watch for pedestrians. You'll be riding in close proximity to other students, so take steps to avoid close encounters. For example, always cross behind pedestrians, as this reduces the likelihood of spooking them.

If you're injured in a bicycle-car accident on or around campus, don't hesitate to call 911. You need to receive immediate medical treatment for your injuries.

As you recover, revisit the circumstances surrounding the accident. This will allow you to take steps to hold the negligent party responsible for their actions.
