According to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, cyclist injuries are on the rise, increasing nearly 10 percent between the last two recorded studies. The studies are also quite clear on the responsibilities of drivers:
“Drivers of motor vehicles need to share the road with bicyclists…allow at least three feet clearance when passing a bicyclist on the road, look for cyclists before opening a car door or pulling out from a parking space, and yield to cyclists at intersections and as directed by signs and signals.”*
Unfortunately, all too many motorists do not do this. Their negligence can be extremely injurious or even deadly. If you or someone close to you has been injured as a pedestrian or cyclist, get in touch as soon as possible.
