Whether you ride a bike as your main means of transportation or because you want to get in shape, one of your goals is to be safe on the road. You know that you face some serious hazards, and a lot of things are out of your control. If a driver turns in front of you when they don't see your bike, for instance, you could suffer serious injuries.
If you collide with a car or truck while bicycling, the results may be tragic. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, more than 800 cyclists died in motor vehicle crashes in 2016, which is the most bicyclist fatalities in one year since 1991.
