Bicycle Accident Caused by Road Hazards
Insignificant Road Conditions to Motor Vehicles Can Be Hazardous to Bicyclists
If you’re in a car, the majority of road hazards are simply insignificant bumps in the road. If you are on a bicycle, however, these road hazards are no longer simple insignificant bumps in the road. Instead, they are serious hazards that can result in catastrophic injury or even death. Examples of serious road hazards for cyclists include:
- Edge breaks – when the shoulder of the road is different height than the adjacent lane of traffic or curb
- Objects on the road
- Loose gravel & rocks
- Manhole Covers
- Slick Surfaces
- Standing Water
- Other Debris
