Cyclists should stay in their lanes to stay safe

Bike riders have a responsibility to ride safely in traffic

Re: Driver remains fearful of riding in traffic in the city (Letters, March 22)

This letter emphasizes concern for cyclists not wearing helmets, and their responsibility to do so in order to prevent brain injury caused by automotive accidents.

What about the responsibility of riding safely instead of putting themselves in harm’s way when they suddenly, without advance notice to the driver, ride in the vehicle’s space? I would be affected for life if I were ever to hit a cyclist. That is my main concern.
