If you get doored, it can happen quickly

Cyclists everywhere worry about getting doored, especially while riding in the city. This is the term for an accident caused by a person in a vehicle opening their door and striking a cyclist as they ride by. It typically happens because the person in the car simply has no situational awareness and has no idea that the cyclist is there.

How can you stay safer if you're driving in to the sun?

As we head in to fall and we have fewer hours of daylight, you may find yourself driving into the sunrise and/or sunset for the first time in a while. The glare can be blinding. If you're already dealing with the aftermath of a car crash, suddenly not being able to see in front of you can be especially frightening. It's also frightening to realize that other drivers around you are being blinded as well.

Electric bicycles are more dangerous than traditional bikes

An electric bicycle is something of a hybrid. It is still a bike and does have a pedal system that the rider can use, but it also has an electric motor. Some use this to assist their efforts to pedal while others use these bikes like a moped -- not pedaling at all. Electric bikes are especially popular with commuters who do not want the expense of a car -- or the pollution it causes -- but who do not want to cycle every day.
