Common Cause of Bicycle Accidents

One of the most common bicycle accident occurs when a car passes too closely to a cyclist and clips them. Bicyclists have rights on the road, just like drivers do. In fact, the city of Cincinnati states that drivers must give a three foot buffer between the vehicle and a cyclist that are traveling in the same direction.

Another common cycling accident occurs when an unaware motorist opens his or her car door as the bike is going by. The city of Cincinnati recommends that bicyclists maintain a four foot gap from parked cars, even if this means taking up a lane of traffic. Drivers are cautioned to never open a door that is facing traffic unless reasonably safe to do so and after carefully checking for any bicycles, pedestrians, or other cars. It is illegal to leave a door that is facing traffic open for an unreasonable amount of time.

Bikers are also in heightened danger whenever they are crossing through an intersection. They should always adhere to traffic signals, but drivers need to be extra aware because bicyclists are harder to see.
