In 2019, 843 people were killed in bicycle accidents. The number of bicyclists killed on the road has decreased by 16 percent since 1975, but that number has risen by 36 percent since 2010. Every year, cyclists account for nearly 2% of all fatalities in car accidents in the United States (pedal cyclists).

In California, cyclists are killed in 4% of all car accidents. This is more than double the national average, putting California first in the country in terms of cyclist fatalities.
