In 2015, there were 45,000 reported bicycle accidents in the United States, down from 50,000 the previous year. Despite a decrease in the number of bicycle accidents, the country’s bicycle fatality rate has increased by 12%. According to National Center for Health Statistics mortality data, 712 bicyclists died in motor vehicle crashes in 2019, and 377 died in other incidents. California leads the nation in the number of bicycle fatalities per year.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 455 cyclists in California died from 2016 to 2018. When riding a bicycle, you must always remember to wear your helmet.
