Just Hold On A Second

Sometimes it’s just an extra second that you need to take to make sure you and those around you are safe.  A majority of motorists, especially this time of year, don’t take the bicycle-hit-car-accidenttime to look for non-drivers, i.e. runners, cyclists, walkers, etc. which could lead to severe consequences.  As someone who cycles often, I can tell you that it’s quite dangerous on the road, simply because either motorists aren’t looking for you or don’t feel the need to yield in your favor.  And I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that there are groups of cyclists who obnoxiously ride together in the middle of the road which makes it hazardous to both driver and cyclist. Regardless of whose fault it is, please just take an extra second before making turns because it’s not always cars that are sharing the road.
