Bike accident attorneys come way too late to the scene.

We are only there to help pick up the pieces, after bicycle crashes leave victims with permanent brain damage, deep scarring, and ongoing medical problems.

At McComb Witten, we are committed to helping bikers to understand their risks better, so they can navigate British Columbia’s beautiful byways and streets more safely. To that end, following are three biking mistakes you are making that you may not know you are making:

1. Driving too frequently at dusk and dawn.

Dusk and dawn are the most dangerous times of day to drive. Why? Because the rapid change in ambient lighting challenges drivers' perceptual systems. When you are in daytime driving mode, you process your visual field differently than when you are in nighttime driving mode. During times of transition—dusk and dawn—it is harder to see obstacles.

2. Not paying enough attention to parked cars.

Being doored is one of the most painful, excruciating events any cyclist can experience. Just because a car is stopped does not mean that you can ignore it. At any time, a driver could open a door into your path and clip your bicycle. So, watch out for parked cars!

3. You are not learning from your mistakes.

Experience is a great teacher. If you pay attention to what happens to you on the road or the bike trail, you will gather an incredible wealth of information that can provide safety feedback.
