Most Common Places for Bike Accidents
The number of bicyclists on the roads has increased in America over the years thanks to advocacy efforts from groups across the country. While more people choose their car over their bike for commuting, the likelihood of being involved in a bike accident has gone up. In response to the growing number of bicyclists, many cities have invested in infrastructure to support them and embrace this growing movement.
Other cities, unfortunately, are slow to this realization and equally slow to making improvements to mitigate the chances of bike accidents and increase safety for all road users. Until all major cities invest in infrastructure, bike accidents will continue to be a problem.
Let’s evaluate what causes bike accidents to occur, and which cities are the most dangerous in the United States.
