In the past three months, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to fewer commuters on the road and fewer traffic jams, if any at all. The lighter traffic provides seemingly safer routes for everyone from motorists to bicyclists. Not so fast, though. While bicycling has grown in popularity during these uncertain times, it would be naïve to declare that roads are safer for the people who ride two-wheelers.

Bicyclist rights and responsibilities in Colorado

Knowing the rules of the road is important as a bicyclist in Colorado. Yet it is perhaps even more important for drivers to understand what they can and cannot do around bikers. In a collision between a vehicle and a bicycle, the vehicle almost always comes out in better shape.
