In summer, many New Hampshire residents head outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather and the longer days. If you’re going out for a walk or a bike ride, these six safety tips can help you avoid becoming the victim of a bicycle or pedestrian accident in New Hampshire:
- Stay visible. Wear bright or reflective clothing so that drivers can see you more easily. If biking or walking at dusk or after dark, always carry a light.
- Take care around parked cars. If you’re walking between parked cars, drivers may not see you until you step into their path. Bicyclists may be hit when the door on a parked car opens, so leave space when passing parked cars on a bicycle.
