Negligent motorist actions that put bicyclists at risk include:
- Speeding Distracted driving (radio, texting, phones, etc.)
- Drifting in to bicycle lanes Failing to signal a turn Failing to signal a lane change Failing to look for bicyclists when exiting the vehicle Impaired driving (DUI, drugs, etc.)
