Safe Cycling Tips #4

Tip #4: Be careful in crosswalks

Sooner or later you're going to find yourself using a crosswalk. Even in pedestrian friendly Washington I've found them to be very dangerous.

Make eye contact with the driver and don't make any assumptions that people are looking out for you.
