Watch Out Pismo! Avoiding Bicyclists on the Road

You don’t need fear bicyclists on the road, even though the consequences of an accident can be dire. It’s entirely possible to practice smart safety on the road if you follow these suggestions.

Ditching the Distractions 

Our radios, phones and conversations seem to take center stage when we’re driving, which leads to countless avoidable incidents on the road. If it hasn’t rained for a while or if our windows are fogged up, we may not take the necessary precautions which jeopardizes our visibility and increases our odds of losing control of the car — and potentially hitting a cyclist. Simply being aware of this can be enough to train yourself to be a better driver. Or you can consider doing something more drastic like putting your phone in the trunk or committing to leave a few minutes early so you have time to warm up your car. Pismo Beach can get a lot of fog, so you don’t want to compromise your drive to work by not being able to see out the window. Sometimes you need to do something out of the ordinary to help drive the point home, and you should do it now before there’s a problem. Doing so can mean that bicyclists and you stay safer on the road.
