Bicycle Accident Statistics

If you’re touring the town, a bicycle can be a more affordable and more environmentally friendly option than using a car. In contrast, bicyclists are less protected from road hazards compared to people traveling in enclosed vehicles.

Unfortunately, the U.S. sees a lot of bicycle fatalities. 742 people per year die in bicycle crashes. Approximately 857 bicyclists were killed across the country in 2018 alone, which was the deadliest year for bicyclists so far.

It has been shown that California has the highest number of annual bicyclist fatalities in the nation. In 2017, 145 Californians were killed, while 11,116 were injured by falling off their bikes. There are several reasons why bicycle accidents occur. Common reasons are drivers failing to yield the right of way, drivers failing to check for bikes before pulling out, drivers running a stop sign or a red light, and distracted driving.
