I am a driver, cyclist, pedestrian: so cyclists for your safety, could you please:

1. Make yourselves visible at night. Wear high visibility clothing, add lights and reflectors to your bike.

2. Ride in the same direction as traffic when using designated bike lanes. If a large vehicle is turning right, vehicles proceeding on the left can’t see you coming if you’re riding on the wrong side of the road because you are hidden from view by the turning vehicle.

3. Not use mobile phones while riding on a road or footpath. Your attention needs to be on safety – yours and pedestrians.

4. Consider the advantages of wearing a helmet.
