Causes of Bicycle Accidents
California state law gives bicyclists the same road rights as traditional
vehicles on the road. Rules regarding riding bicycles on the sidewalk
vary from city to city, but most riders ride in the street to avoid both
citations and people walking on the sidewalk. Motorists are often under
the impression that bicyclists should yield to them, which is a common
cause for these types of accidents.
Bicycle accidents occur most often due to:
- Motorists fail to yield to the right-of-way
- Bicyclists fail to yield to the right-of-way
- Automobiles turn in front of a bicyclists
- Motorists attempt to pass bicycle riders
- Unsafe lane merges by motorists
