Bicycle Accidents in San Bernardino
Causes of Bike Accidents in California
California state law gives bicyclists the same rights of way as motorists on the road. Cyclists are not allowed to ride on the sidewalks unless it is dangerous do ride in the street, which means that motorists are required to be on the alert for bicyclists and to treat them the same way they would another motorist. Unfortunately, many motorists are ignorant of these laws and assume that bicyclists must yield to them, or fail to notice cyclists in the streets. The resulting accidents can leave a bicyclist with catastrophic injuries that require expensive and ongoing medical care.
