When it comes to ensuring the safety of cyclists on country roads, both drivers and those on bikes have to take responsibility for their actions – or the impact can be devastating, Toronto critical injury lawyer Patrick Brown tells 99.5 Moose FM in Bracebridge.
“We see far too many cases of cyclists either being severely injured or killed on the country roads or cottage roads,” says Brown, partner with McLeish Orlando LLP.
A person on a bike is subject to the laws of the Highway Traffic Act, and must follow the rules of the road, says Brown. As such, he says, cyclists should always wear a helmet, be sure to have lights on their bikes, wear bright clothing, fix flat tires away from traffic and ride in a group where possible.
