Smart Moves Video: Preventing Right Hooks

/
In this video, we examine the two common types of right hook: 1) when a motorist passes a bicyclist and turns right; 2) when a bicyclist rides into the blind spot of a motorist who is turning right. As with most crashes, a right hook can be prevented by one party regardless of error or legal fault on the part of the other.
