CAUSES OF BIKE ACCIDENTS
Studies show that about every very six hours a bicyclist is fatally injured in the United States. Traumatic brain injury accounts for approximately 3/4 of all serious bicycle accident injuries. Negligent drivers are a major cause of bicycle accidents, such as:
- Driver of a car, truck or motorcycle turning in front of the bicyclist;
- Driver of a vehicle pulling out from a parking space or driveway in front of the cyclist;
- Driver’s failure to yield or ignoring traffic signals;
- Driver’s inattention operating a vehicle near a bicyclist;
- Driver being excessively tired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The majority of Minnesota bicycle accidents occur in the crosswalk. Bike riders have the same rights as pedestrians in a crosswalk, on a sidewalk, and in a bike lane.
