The Dangers Of Sharing The Road In Los Angeles
Cyclists face uncertainty when they hit the road on their bikes. Drivers in motor vehicles often do not view cyclists as fellow motorists with equal rights to the road. Distracted drivers put their social lives above your safety when they choose to text and drive or use social media instead of paying attention.
Risks to cyclists come in many forms and riders need to be aware at all times. When a bicycle is in an accident with a motor vehicle such as a car or truck, the cyclist is more vulnerable and bike injuries — or even fatalities — often result.
Common dangers from motor vehicles include:
- Distracted driving
- Dangerous turns
- Excessive speed
- Passing too close
- Dooring a bicyclist
