4 reasons biking accidents happen and how to avoid them

If you're an avid cyclist, one of the things you want to do is to avoid getting into an accident. You know you don't have much protection against the weight of a vehicle, but how can you make sure you're not hit? Here are four different causes of accidents and how to avoid them.

Higher speeds get drastically more dangerous for pedestrians

It's very clear that pedestrians who are struck by cars are going to be in more danger when the cars are moving more quickly, as the overall energy of the collision is increased with speed. However, just how much more dangerous may come as a surprise.

Biking lanes: How bicycling can affect a city

Biking accidents can be harmful to cyclists, drivers, and witnesses. For people who ride often, it's important to know that the cities they live in take bicyclists seriously. Bicyclists have a right to be on the road, and drivers need to be aware of them. Causing an accident because of negligence or driving errors puts a cyclist at risk of injury or death, which can normally be avoided with proper driving safety techniques. Those who are hurt then must spend time seeking compensation when they should be focusing on recovering; this is why many choose to work with an attorney.
