Bike lane

Cyclists face significant risks on the road, especially when negligent drivers fail to prioritize their safety. Bike lanes, designed to protect riders, can provide a dedicated space for cyclists, separate from traffic. However, even in bike lanes, accidents are still common.

    How Can Separate Routes for Bicycles Improve Safety?

    In many cities and places, bike lanes are strategically placed to accommodate riders and ensure their safety. These designated lanes offer a separate route for bicycles, often on the side of the road, away from the flow of traffic.

    Bike lanes serve as a method for cyclists to navigate busy streets while minimizing the risk of collisions with vehicles, pedestrians, and other cyclists. They act as a protective barrier, shielding bike riders from vehicles that may pass by at high speeds.

     

    Is Using Bicycle lanes Dangerous?

    Unfortunately, riding in bike lanes can still be dangerous for the cyclist. One common cause of accidents is when motorists fail to check for cyclists before turning or merging into a bike lane. Some drivers may underestimate the speed at which cyclists approach or simply overlook them. This can lead to devastating consequences for bicyclists.

    Parked cars are another major hazard. Some people will park their car in the bike lane. When the driver is still in the vehicle and suddenly opens their car door, a cyclist may collide with them, resulting in severe injuries. This type of accident is known as dooring and it’s very common.

    Additionally, debris, trash cans, and other obstacles in the bike lane can cause a serious accident if the rider isn’t vigilant.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
