Drivers can't become too focused on themselves when behind the wheel. Sharing the road with bicyclists is vital now more than ever. A combination of choosing to "go green" and save money has put scores of bikes on the road. Drivers must be extra careful to avoid any tragic accidents.

Driving in a controlled manner helps. Don't follow too close to bicyclists and always maintain a decent, safe distance when turning. Keep your speed in check if there are bicyclists on the road. Extra care should cut down on the chances of an accident.

Take a "No distracted driving" approach to the road. Distracted driving increases the odds of an accident. When bicyclists are present, distracted driving accident risks could increase. Be extra alert and don't play with radios, touchscreens, smartphones, and the like.
