Tips for treating road rash after a bike accident

People sometimes think of road rash as a "minor" injury in a bicycling accident. Compared to a head or brain injury, it is relatively minor, but this doesn't mean you should underestimate the impact. It can be incredibly painful and keep you out of work. It can get infected and lead to serious complications. It can lead to scarring that forever changes your appearance. You have to take road rash seriously.

Do bike lanes really help?

In order to make it safer and easier for cyclists to share the road with cars, many areas have implemented special bike lanes that cyclists can use. These are generally just thin lanes running along the right-hand side of the road.

Drivers see what they expect, and they do not expect bicycles

A lot of drivers hit cyclists that they simply never see. In some cases, this can be traced to dangerous driving habits, like texting and driving. However, many cases involve drivers who look right at the bicycles, still do not see them, and cause the accidents.

Bike helmets lower severe head injury risks by 50 percent

There are those who say modern bike helmets simply do not offer enough protection, still allowing injuries to occur in a crash. While that may be true, a new study suggests that cyclists should not simply give up on their helmets. They still cut the odds of a serious head injury down by half.
