Key statistics about bicycle accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) often looks at bicycle accident statistics in an effort to figure out how to make the roads safer for cyclists. There will always be an inherent danger, but that does not mean steps can't be taken to protect cyclists. Many accidents are easily avoidable.

Safety tips to consider before your next bike ride

Whether you ride a bike as your main means of transportation or because you want to get in shape, one of your goals is to be safe on the road. You know that you face some serious hazards, and a lot of things are out of your control. If a driver turns in front of you when they don't see your bike, for instance, you could suffer serious injuries.

Group ride accident highlights challenges with rider liability

"There is safety in numbers." This common expression reflects the idea that being part of a group makes it more difficult to become the victim of an accident or attack. While this may be true when it comes to walking at night or exploring an unfamiliar place, it isn't always the case when it comes to cycling.

A bike accident can lead to Acute Stress Disorder

A bicycle accident can lead to serious physical injuries. However, it is important not to overlook the mental impact of being involved in a crash, especially a serious accident or a near fatality. Experts warn that this can lead to a condition known as Acute Stress Disorder (ASD).

Berkeley picks new chief campus counsel after deadly bike crash

UC Berkeley has picked a new chief campus counsel, promoting a former associate campus counsel from within the school's own system. He started his new job on June 1. He has already been doing the job in everything but the official title since October of last year, serving in an interim position.

Cyclist killed when struck by car in California

Despite the sheer number of cyclists on the street in California, the roads remain a dangerous place. Collisions involving cars and bicycles put the cyclists in extreme danger, and even a small mistake made by a driver can lead to serious injuries or even death for a cyclist.

Los Angeles paid $19 million for bike crash injuries in 2017

Each day across Southern California, another bicyclist risks suffering an injury due to uneven, broken or potholed pavement. Just last year, bike crashes were apparently so frequent in Los Angeles alone that 17 claims totaling $19 million dollars in damages ended up being paid out to injured residents or deceased individuals' families. This amount marks a 75 percent increase over any other year during the past decade.

Bike accident numbers have gotten worse over the years

Car accidents certainly happen more often than bike accidents, but that doesn't mean that we should worry about the safety of bicyclists less. In fact, given the vulnerable nature of bicyclists out on the road, we should care about their safety even more. Bike accidents often result in serious injuries, or even fatal injuries, for the bicyclist. Without all of the safety features and upgrades that cars have, people who travel by bike are at an inherent disadvantage out on the road.
