Cycling Road Safety

Whether you’re hitting the streets of Chicago and riding to work, or you’re leisurely enjoying a bike trail, safety should be first priority for the rider. Cyclists are extremely vulnerable to motorized traffic and variable road conditions. Cyclists can increase road safety by following a few guidelines while sharing the road with drivers and pedestrians.

Help Drivers and Pedestrians Predict Your Next Move
Unlike motor vehicles that are equipped with break lights and turn signals, it becomes the cyclist’s duty to signal to others while riding. If you maintain your speed and position in your bike lane and use signals when you are stopping and turning, drivers and pedestrians will be able to predict your next move and adjust accordingly.

Be Seen!
Cyclists can use reflectors, front and back bike lights, brightly colored clothing, and flashers to increase their visibility both day and night. The use of a bike bell or bike horn will also aid in letting people know that you are approaching.

Be a Courteous Rider
Scan the road and the sides of the roads for pedestrians. By law, bikers must always yield to pedestrians and avoid blocking cross walks.

Personal Safety
Don’t forget your pre-ride check! Before riding, examine your bike to be sure that your wheels and brakes are in place. Use a helmet and mirrors for changing lanes. Also use pant clips and be sure loose clothing or shoelaces will not get caught in the chain.

Providing Fast and Friendly
Service for over 50 years!

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
