Cyclists should be especially careful at stop signs since a majority of bike accidents happen at intersections. When stopped, always see if the motorist has a stop sign and that they acknowledge you. Even if you do not have a stop sign, you will be better off at least pausing at intersections if there is a car present.
Cyclists should always make sure that they yield at intersections, whether it is controlled or uncontrolled. There is always a chance that you might misjudge the car’s speed or distance, which can result in an accident that can lead to the need for bike replacement.
The Right Hook and Left Cross
The “right hook” is when a motorist makes a right turn and does not see the cyclist on their right, or the cyclist passes the car right at an intersection. The “left cross” is when a motorist and cyclist approach an intersection at the motorist makes a left turn and hits the cyclist.
