In a brochure
published by the Bellevue Police Department
and City of Bellevue
, they indicate what bicyclists should know about riding their bicycle on city streets.
Between riding one's bicycle on the street versus the sidewalk, it is usually safest for adults to ride their bicycles on the street. If your child is less than 10 years old, though, they are better off riding their bicycle on the sidewalks.
While riding your bike on the sidewalk, it is important to watch for drivers pulling out of or into driveways. Also stop and look for cars before crossing intersections- make sure the driver sees you before continuing through the intersection.
Whenever you enter a roadway, do it in a way a driver would expect- like at a street corner and not coming between parked cars.
As you approach a pedestrian, alert them that you are near by saying "excuse me" or "on your left" or have a bell to ring before you pass.
If you were in an accident while riding your bicycle and were injured as a result, call the bicycle accident lawyer at the directly Andrew Kim Law Firm.
