Bicyclists have a right to enjoy the roads of Midlothian. Jaguar Land Rover Richmond wants drivers to be aware of safe ways to share the road with bicycles. A little care can help to prevent accidents and keep everyone safe.

Intersections are where many accidents between drivers and bicyclists occur. Use extra caution when approaching an intersection with a bicycle on your right, especially if you are turning. It is also easy for a cyclist to fall into your blind spot. If your car has a blind spot monitoring system, this could make it easier to detect bicycles near your path.

Three feet of distance between your vehicle and a bicycle is a good rule of thumb. This is just a suggestion. Maintain whatever distance you need to keep yourself and the bike rider safe. Never pass without the proper clearance.
