Do Your Part to Protect Bicyclists

When you're driving on the roads around Warwick, RI, there are so many things you have to be aware of. Other vehicles, hazards, pedestrians, and bicyclists can all affect how you drive. To keep bicyclists safe, we encourage you at Bald Hill Kia to remember several things.

The most important step you can take is to put away your cell phone when you get behind the wheel. Distracted driving can be very dangerous, and since it's really not a fair match when a car hits a bike, you need to do your part to keep others safe.

Also, be patient when you're getting ready to pass a bicyclist. Wait until there's a good opportunity to do so rather than cutting it close. It's recommended that you leave at least three feet between you and the bicyclist at all times. This gives him or her room to maneuver.
