When you ride your bike, you hope that you can so in a safe manner. As long as you follow the rules of the road, it is your belief that nothing bad will ever happen. Unfortunately, this is not always true.
There is always the possibility that you could be involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. If this happens, there is a good chance you will be injured.
So, why are bike accidents so common? There are many reasons for this, including the fact that some drivers don’t want to share the road with bicyclists.
Some of the most common actions that lead to a collision with a bicyclist include:
— Left turns without looking.
— Distracted driving.
— Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
— Not using turn signals.
— Running a red light or stop sign.
— Road rage.
