Is Cycling in Lightning Safe

The bike may well be a healthy way, silent and non-polluting, the fact remains that its practice involves risks that can be partially prevented with good equipment. A recent study shows that unfortunately this is not the case: three-quarters of cyclists are poorly lit at night.

A recent survey by the Road Safety Association and the insurer MMA raises an important issue in the world of urban cycling. The study was conducted between January and March in 11 French cities including Paris and the result is not glorious: 3 of 4 cyclists have an absent or defective lighting system, thereby increasing their risk of serious accident.

The lighting in the city is often enough to see the cyclist but do not think enough to be seen. Jean-Yves Salaun the Road Safety Association.

On average, 13% of cyclists are equipped with accessories optimizing their visibility and only 1 of 10 wear a helmet. However, the bicycle light is mandatory and a reflective safety vest (off-agglomeration). These facilities are essential to the safety of the cyclist because it allows it to be visible for 150 meters against 30 meters without accessories.

So do not forget that cycling can be dangerous, motorists do not necessarily attention to cyclists and often see not the same, that is why he must mark its presence on the roads. In 2012, 155 cyclists were unfortunately killed in a road accident and 20% of them were driving at night.
