Bicycling in California
In California, numerous people choose bicycling as an alternative form of transportation. Bicycling offers a more affordable and environmentally friendly mode of commuting. Through bicycling, many people can exercise and improve their health and strength. But along with these great benefits, also comes potential dangers.
Bicycling can be extremely dangerous with potential hazardous roads and faulty bicycle manufacturing. In addition, cyclists can be subject to collisions with a variety of vehicles, including big rigs, SUVs, and trucks. Accidents with these vehicles, and even a normal sized passenger vehicle, can lead to devastating injuries. There are numerous incidences where bicyclists are tragically killed by unknowing drivers who just do not see the cyclist in their blind spot.
Many bicyclists wear helmets and protective pads for safety practices. While these protective guards may offer some protection, accidents with vehicles are often likely to be severe and even fatal. Many cyclists suffer from brain and spinal injuries and fractures. A vehicle is just much stronger and larger compared to a bicyclist that when the two collide, the cyclist is bound to result in awful injuries.
In some situations, when the bicyclist is fast enough to avoid collision with an oncoming car, they are forced to run into a pole or property as a result. If the bicyclist causes damage to another property while trying to swerve out of a collision, the bicyclist may be held liable for the damage done. The bicyclist may also become injured while trying to prevent an accident with another vehicle.
