Bicyclists going against traffic

As someone who rides a bicycle on a weekly basis, I think it’s wonderful that Memphis is finally becoming a more bicycle friendly city.
The new trails are great, and I hope to see bike lanes on city streets soon. But I don’t think we in Memphis know enough about bike safety. I’m talking about adults here.
Case in point: When about to make a right-hand turn this morning, I encountered a bicyclist going the wrong way against traffic.
This occurred at a corner where a wall blocked visibility. Luckily, the bicyclist turned the corner seconds before I did, and I was driving slowly enough to avoid a collision. The bicyclist was not even wearing a helmet, but I doubt a helmet would have given much protection had a head-on collision occurred.
I Googled for bicycle safety rules this morning and came across a website with some great safety tips. Check out for tips on “How to Not Get Hit by Cars.”
