日本の自転車事情

Situation about Bicycle in Japan

Serious bicycle accidents have increased and new measures are being taken.

Bicycles are now categorized as ‘vehicles” despite the lack of a motor in the bike, so it must abide by traffic rules as well as the cars and motorcycles.

Although the city and countryside have different circumstances, you can ride a bicycle relaxed in the country, but on the other hand, sidewalks and roadways are divided in the city often, so taking the sidewalk by bicycle is recommended and also bicyclists are required to take the roadway at some places.

Car drivers who drive next to bicycles in parallel on the roadway feel very dangerous and scary.

There are many bicyclists who suddenly jump out without a safety check.

自転車の深刻な事故が増加し、
新しい対策がとられています。
自転車にはモーターがついていませんが
「車両」とされていますので、
車やバイクと同様に交通ルールを守らなければなりません。
都会と田舎では事情が違いますが、
人が少なくのんびり走れる田舎と違って
都会では歩道と車道が分かれているところでは
場所によって自転車は歩道を走ることを推奨されていたり
車道を走らなければならなかったりします。
自転車が車道を走ると並行して走る車の運転手は
非常に危なく感じ、怖いものです。
安全確認をせずに急に飛び出してくる自転車が多いのです。
