When Driver Negligence Harms Bicyclists
In communities all over the U.S., bicycles are being integrated into the
regular flow of motor vehicle traffic. While bicycling offers a healthy
and environmentally-friendly mode transportation for countless travelers,
these bicyclists face considerable more danger on the road than other
motorists if an accident occurs.
Common examples of motorist negligence in bicycle accidents include:
- Failing to properly signal
- Drifting into bicycle lanes (or road shoulders)
- Failing to properly heed traffic signage/lights
- Failure to properly look for bicycles at intersections
- Drunk, drugged, or fatigued driving

serious and even catastrophic injuries can occur when these collisions
