Bicycle Accidents Archives

What is the bicycle buffer zone?

When bicyclists are sharing the roadway with motor vehicles, the vehicles must ensure that they are keeping a safe distance between the bicycle and their vehicle. When this distance isn't kept, there is a greater chance that the bicyclist will be struck and suffer from injuries.

Hundreds of people die every year in bike accidents

While the data we are about to discuss is a couple of years old, it still illustrates the risk that bicyclists face out on the road. Data from 2013 shows that 743 people were killed in bicycle vs. motor vehicle accidents, and another 48,000 people suffered injuries in those accidents. Both of those figures are up from 2001, even though they represent a decline from 2011. As you can see, bike accident statistics fluctuate a bit even though they follow a general trend.

Vehicles must allow buffer space when passing cyclists

With spring on its way, there are soon likely to be more bicycles on the road, which could mean an increase in bicycle accidents, too. Drivers aren't always happy about having to share the road with bicycles. But there are laws in place to help protect bicyclists from passing cars. 

Safety tips for winter biking

There are bikers, and then there are the bikers who commit to riding all year long, even when snow and ice cover the ground. While their determination is laudable, these bikers need to take extra precautions during icy wintry conditions to prevent not only slips and spills, but collisions with other bikers, pedestrians or cars that could result in serious injury or worse.
