Did you get laid? …out on the road by a negligent motorist?
If you did, we’re sorry that happened to you. We hope you contacted our office so that we could represent you and get you the best possible outcome.
My name is Lenore Shefman. I am an attorney with Shefman Law, CyclistLaw.com.
It’s Bike Month and we want to make sure you’re getting out on the road as safe as possible. Here are some tips for getting your bike out of the garage.
A couple things you want to make sure of:
You want to make sure your tires have the proper pressure in them; the PSI is listed here on the side of the tire.
You also want to make sure your brakes are making contact with the rim of your tire. Squeeze those brakes and make sure you have contact, and when you get out there, roll slowly and make sure that the brakes are actually working. If they’re not, bring it to your local bike shop. If you hear squeaking, that’s okay. Just clean the tires off with some water and if that doesn’t remedy the problem, again, bring it in to your local bike shop.
You want to make sure you have lights on your bike so that you’re seen by other motorists out there. It’s a visibility issue. The more lumens you have, the more likely you are to be seen. You also want to make sure you have a rear light. Blinking is good; it’s helpful, and even in daylight it will help you be a little more visible.
Now, wearing a helmet—it’s a good idea. It might just save your life.
