Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, one of the top causes of bicycle accidents in Texas is drivers being inattentive or intentionally deciding not to yield to bicyclists. It’s important for drivers to be alert and aware of their surroundings, especially when it pertains to looking out for bicyclists since they’re already harder to see and hear. Because their bodies lack protection, bicyclists are highly susceptible to injuries during an accident.
