Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
When bicyclists ride on the road, even when in bike lanes, vehicles often
tend to ignore or overlook their rights and space. Drivers have a tough
time sharing the road with bicyclists, especially in congested areas.
Inattention and other issues often lead to tragic accidents.
Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Drivers failing to yield the right of way
- Poorly constructed roadways or bike lanes
- Driver inattention or distraction
- Drivers opening a door into bike lane traffic
- Drivers pushing or hedging riders off the road
When collisions occur between a vehicle and bicycle, it can result in a
serious accident, such as the incident where a cyclist was dragged by
an SUV. You can read more about that
here. With bicycles providing little to no protection, riders are usually the
ones suffering injuries. From head trauma to neck and spinal cord injuries,
a bicyclist may be facing long-term pain.
