Bicycle Season Has Arrived

This last week I've seen brave souls out on the roads and sidewalks on their bicycles. Unfortunately we have seen an increase in bike/car collisions in the last couple of years in the Region. Regardless of who is to blame in these accidents the cyclist is always the one injured seriously.

As a cyclist you should be taking care on the roads. Here are some tips to keep you safe:

  • Obeying the rules of the road
  • Stick to the bike lanes
  • Wear a helmet and bright coloured clothes
  • Be aware of what's around you

If you are injured in a car accident then you are entitled to accident benefits under the Insurance Act even if you have no insurance yourself.  You can read about the details of making claims on my website. It can be fairly complicated. Remember that as with all car accidents there are timelines for making claims.
