Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Over 12,000 bicyclists were injured in Texas within a 5-year span, according to recent studies. Most of these accidents occur when drivers are distracted, tired, or drunk, especially if the accident occurs late in the evening. Even though drivers are required to give riders at least 3 feet, drivers fail to abide by this ordinance and continue to accidentally strike and seriously harm bicyclists. If more drivers respected bicyclists’ rights on the road, less riders would sustain injuries.
