Bicycling is one of the fastest-growing past times in California and a popular form of exercise. Already in 2020, nationwide sales of bicycles and related accessories have grown more than 600% over this time last year.
Though this growth in bicycle sales is in large part due to concerns about using public transportation during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a desire amongst restless Americans to get out and exercise, it rides an upward trend in bicycle sales that began many years before.
Unfortunately, this increase in the popularity of bicycling also comes with an increase in bicycle accidents. What's' more, when an automobile is involved in a bicycle accident, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of cyclists killed in 2018 rose 6.3%, even though total traffic fatalities declined. Also, according to the NHTSA, a total of 857 bicyclists were killed in accidents involving other motor vehicles in 2018, a 7% increase from the previous year.
