Many residents and visitors alike use bicycles in San Diego to commute to and from work, run errands, cruise down the Mission Bay Bike Path, and get around town. Not only is it good exercise and good for the environment, but it can also save time and frustration that often arises from crowded and busy roadways.

San Diego also boasts a mild year-round climate with many parks and areas for outdoor recreation. Unfortunately, sometimes outdoor recreation can end in disaster.

Bicyclists are vulnerable to the dangers on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 840 cyclists were killed in motor-vehicle-related accidents in 2016, accounting for 2 percent of traffic fatalities.

Bicycle accident cases are already complicated to deal with on their own. But, when a hit-and-run driver is involved, it gets even more complicated. Leaving the scene after an accident is a crime in itself. However, that does not stop other irresponsible motorists from driving away.
