Causes of Bicycle Accidents
There are many factors that contribute to bicycle accident injuries in Seattle, including extreme weather conditions, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, motorists or bicyclists failing to yield, and distracted motorists or cyclists.
While the city of Seattle has been working tirelessly for the best decade to improve safety conditions for cyclists and pedestrians, accidents still happen. When a 3,000 pound passenger vehicle hits a cyclist, it’s not a fair fight, and more often the cyclist is the one who sustains the worse injury.
Cycling is a fun way to recreate, travel, or commute, but it can also be dangerous. Exposed to the weather and other road conditions with little barrier, cyclists are at risk of suffering severe injuries.
Fortunately, you can reduce your chances of being severely hurt in a bicycle accident by following basic road rules. This includes:
- Wearing a helmet to protect your head.
- Wearing bright and also reflective clothing.
- Riding on the right side of the road with the flow of traffic.
- Use proper hand signals to let motorists know what you intend to do.
- Use caution when changing lanes and ride defensively.
- Also, watch out for open car doors when riding through parking lots or near parallel parked cars.
