Roughly half of bicycle accident fatality victims are children under the age of 16. And so many of these tragic accidents could be easily avoided.
Bicycle crashes can involve drunk or distracted driving , or a mistake by an inexperienced motorist. Bicycle collisions with cars account for the majority of catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths. Driver negligence consists of things like running a stop sign, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to yield to the bicycle rider or being inattentive while backing out of a driveway.
A bicycle accident can cause emotional trauma in addition to physical injury. A vulnerable human body on a bike is hardly a match for a powerful speeding automobile or impact with hard pavement. Even experienced bicyclists can be involved in one of these tragic accidents. The twists and turns of Idaho’s highways can make a seasoned bicyclist vulnerable to serious injury.
