According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there are approximately 700 bike deaths a year in America resulting from collisions with automobiles. Additionally, there are over 50,000 injuries annually.
Geared2U has listened to its customers and has now launched a helmet mounted bike mirror designed to give cyclists another tool to stay safe on America's increasingly congested roads.
Guy Pierce, owner of Geared2U, believes biking should be a safe activity for everyone but that riders still need to protect themselves.
"53% of collisions between a vehicle and a bicycle occur because, according to the police report, the vehicle driver failed to look properly. That means to be safe, bike riders not only need to watch the road, but also have to monitor the traffic all around them" said Pierce. "Regardless of who has the right of way, you can't assume a vehicle will always do what is expected. Having a helmet mounted mirror allows you to see the traffic all around you so you're not surprised. It's an excellent tool in your safety kit. "
The Geared2U bicycle safety mirror was designed with screw tightened joints to minimize movement and vibration once adjusted by the rider and has a Velcro attachment pad so it can attach on any bike helmet.
Unlike mandatory helmet regulations in some jurisdictions, bike safety mirrors are not mandatory in any state. However, they are becoming increasingly popular as more and more bicyclists take to the roads. Many riders find them very helpful, particularly in urban areas where there is a high concentration of vehicle traffic overtaking the rider.
"When a larger vehicle overtakes a bike rider on a busy road, the closer proximity on passing and the large volume of the vehicle can startle the biker and in some cases, even cause a loss of balance" said Pierce. "Our customers tell us the mirror gives you a safe way to know what's coming so they're prepared."
The Geared2U Bike Mirror is available at www.amazon.com.
