How to Safely Enjoy Your NYC Citi Bike

Bike Accident AttorneyRiding a bike has become an even more popular and convenient mode of transportation on the streets of New York since the recent launch of the Citi Bike Share Program. Riders can pick up and drop off Citi bikes at various locations throughout the different boroughs of NYC. However, as convenient and enjoyable as riding a Citi bike can be, it also accompanies dangers when sharing the busy roads with other motorists and taxi cab drivers.

In order to safely enjoy your New York Citi bike, you should consider the following safety guidelines:

  • Always wear a properly fitted helmet, even though the law only requires it for children less than 14 years of age.
  • Obey all traffic laws on the road, as bicyclists are subject to the same traffic laws as motorists.
  • Ride in bicycle lanes, where provided.
  • Always ride with traffic, not against it.
  • If you choose to use earphones, you are permitted to wear them in one ear only.
  • Yield to all pedestrians, as they have the right of way.
  • Do not weave in and out of traffic.
  • Use hand signals when making turns.
  • Wear bright clothing that will make you more visible to motorists on the road.
  • Do not ride your Citi bike if you have consumed alcoholic beverages. Drinking and biking will significantly impair your reaction time and may result in a New York City bicycle accident.

However, even if you take all of the necessary safety precautions, you may still be involved in an accident. As a bicyclist, your only recourse may to be to timely file a personal injury claim against the party who caused the accident.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
