While we hate to admit it, summer will soon come to a close. However, in New Mexico, this does not mean that one has to say good-bye to most summer time activities for much of the year. Riding a bicycle is not only a great form of exercise and an environmentally conscious way to get around; it is a form of transportation that is frequently used by residents to get to and from their destinations.
Thus, motorists are often sharing the roadway with bicyclists. While drivers should take note of bikers and drive with caution around one, this does not only occur. And when a driver is negligent, this could result in a serious and even fatal bicycle crash.
