Help Your Child Avoid a Serious Bicycle Accident
Riding in the street is the safest place for a bicyclist. However, children under the age of 10 are better off riding on the sidewalk. Children under 10 are not mature enough to make difficult decisions necessary to safely ride in the street. The following are some tips to teach your child to avoid a serious bicycle accident.
- Watch for vehicles coming out or turning into driveways.
- Stop at corners of sidewalks and streets to look for cars.
- Before crossing a street, make eye contact for any drivers who may stop for you.
- Always enter a street at a corner not between parked cars.
- Alert pedestrians on the sidewalk that you are nearby saying, “Excuse me,” or “Passing on your left.” You could also use a bell or horn to alert others.
- Always wear a bicycle helmet that fits properly.
- Check the equipment of your bicycle. Be sure the tires are properly inflated; the brakes are working and your bike seat is adjusted correctly for comfort.
