What Are the Most Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents?
Bicyclists are very exposed and, unfortunately, not all motorists pay close enough attention to those they share the road with.
Here are some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents:
- Not maintaining enough distance: When drivers do not leave enough space between their vehicle and bicyclists, a catastrophic accident can easily occur. Following too closely to bicyclists also gives riders fewer options to avoid accidents.
- Distracted driving: From texting and talking on the phone to fiddling around with a GPS, there are so many distractions that might keep a driver’s eyes off the road, resulting in an accident.
- Speeding: When drivers speed, it decreases the amount of time they have to make decisions and stop. A speeding vehicle can be even more dangerous to a bicyclist than to other motorists on the road.
- Impaired driving: Drivers who are drunk or under the influence of drugs will be less aware of their surroundings and unable to make quick decisions.
Other common causes of bike accidents include unsafe lane changes, failing to yield, turning without looking, and weaving through traffic. Moreover, common bicycle injuries include fractures, lacerations, head injuries, contusions, and more. Do not hesitate to seek medical assistance as soon as possible after a bicycle accident.
