Why Bicycle Accidents Are So Dangerous
When a collision between two motor vehicles occurs, all drivers and passengers
usually have the advantage of cabin safety features—along with being
protected from a direct impact. Bicyclists, however, do not have this
luxury and motorist negligence can inflict life-altering, even life-threatening trauma.
What does motorist negligence look like in bicycle accidents?
- Drift into bicycle lanes and road shoulders
- Not looking before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
- Tailgating (following cyclists too closely)
- Failing to properly signal at an intersection
- Distracted driving due to personal devices, smartphones, etc.
- Impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol
