Fewer Cars, More Bikes – A Recipe for Disaster?

During the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown, pedestrian foot traffic and the number of bicyclists on the roads have increased. As the lockdown restrictions slowly loosen, many commuters will opt for alternative means of transportation to avoid the close quarters of public transportation.

Bicycle shops are already seeing this trend firsthand. The industry is seeing an increase in sales over the last two months and a shortage of supply, requiring many to wait weeks before receiving a newly purchased bicycle. It does not matter if you are a seasoned cyclist or just starting out; the facts show that roads are not necessarily safer with fewer drivers.

Law enforcement agencies have been reporting an increase in speeding and reckless driving tickets since the COVID-19 lockdown. Some cities and states are even experiencing an increase in road-related fatalities. Some experts believe that this is due to drivers being under increased stress associated with the pandemic and the ability to drive faster with fewer cars.

An increase in reckless driving combined with pedestrians and bicyclists on the road, is a recipe for disaster.

That is why it is more important than ever to be cautious while driving and respect the road rules. We must continue to be vigilant and mindful of all those who share the road with us, whether by car, foot, or bike.

Be safe out there. We are all in this together for the foreseeable future.
