Biking is super safe…. it’s biking with unsafe drivers that isn’t.
“There need to be more bike lanes; there need to be more laws in place for the safety of cyclists … and enforcing those laws, on top of that,” Mobishwash says.
As for measures cyclists can take to try to protect themselves, she adds: “At this point the next time I get on my bike I’m going to buy an air horn. I don’t know what else I can do to really make them hear me.”
