Travel Tip of the Day: Watch Out for Bikes

ZurichWatch Out for Bikes
Yesterday’s and last Thursday’s tips were about crossing the street (one in New York and the other in Ho Chi Minh City). Well, here’s another traffic-related tip: When I cross the street, no matter where I am (but especially New York), I always do triple-takes—even when I’m headed down a one-way street. That’s because there are lots of bikers and bicycle delivery riders who are not only fearless, but also often don’t think twice about going down a street the wrong way, riding on the sidewalk or going through a crowd.

You need to watch for them, because not all of them are watching for you. They’re even more difficult to spot at night since a lot of them don’t have lights and—as bikes don’t have motors—you can’t hear them coming.
