Why Are Bicycle Accidents Dangerous?
Of all the vehicles on the road, a bicycle is in the most vulnerable position. It does not have the protections of a car; it doesn’t move as fast as a motorcycle to keep up with traffic flow. It is also significantly quieter than any other vehicle. Together, the previous facts make them highly susceptible to dangerous lapses in attention from other drivers.
In addition to basic accidents, bicyclists face issues with:
- Dooring (intentional or unintentional)
- Aggressive drivers
- Dangerous road conditions
