Bicycle Accident Statistics

The statistics regarding bicycle accidents are staggering. In 2010, more than 600 people were killed as a result of bicycle accidents, and thousands of these fatalities were directly related to traffic accidents. Even with the promotion of the "share the road" campaign, many cyclists are still struck by drivers.

According to California laws, when a cyclist is traveling on the road, he or she must adhere to all the same laws as vehicles. If a vehicle doesn't give them the space they need or fails to pay attention to them, it can lead to serious accidents. One of the most serious issues that threatens cyclists is distracted drivers. Whether it be due to answering a text or not checking a blind spot, a bicyclist can quickly be put in danger when a driver takes their focus off the road ahead of them.
