Traffic Safety When Biking in Oceanside
I’m Ed Smith, an Oceanside bicycle accident lawyer. Riding a bicycle is becoming more common due to the health benefit, low cost to operate, environmental benefits and because it provides an enjoyable way to get from place to place. However, traffic safety when bicycling is an issue.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2015 was a risky year for bicycle riders, with nearly 467,000 injuries and more than 1,000 deaths. Most of these could be attributed to collisions with motor vehicles. However, aside from risk factors, there are laws in California designed to make it safer for bicycle riders.
