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
