Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bicycles riders are required to obey traffic laws. Since many riders are on the road, one of the largest causes of bicycle accidents is inattentive drivers who are not looking out for bicyclists. Even while obeying traffic laws, many bicyclists are struck by other vehicles millions of times each year.
Another cause of bicycle accidents is obstacles left in riding areas by careless property owners, business owners, or property managers. While many obstacles are avoidable by older cyclists, many children and young bicyclists are injured each year after colliding with obstacles.
If you are a biker, be careful. Wear a helmet and obey the traffic laws. When you are on the road, ride defensively.
