How NOT to get hit by cars
""This page shows you real ways you can get hit and real ways to avoid them. This is a far cry from normal bicycle safety guides, which usually tell you little more than to wear your helmet and to follow the law. But consider this for a moment: Wearing a helmet will do absolutely nothing to prevent you from getting hit by a car! Sure, helmets might help you if you get hit, and it's a good idea to wear one, but your #1 goal should be to avoid getting hit in the first place.
Plenty of cyclists are killed by cars even though they were wearing helmets. Don't confuse wearing a helmet with biking safely.....It's better to not get hit. That's what real bicycle safety is about."
Intrigued? READ ON AND RIDE ON!
