May is Bicycle Awareness Month

By Grant Law Office on May 1, 2010

The education and exposure to bicyclists and safety programs makes for a safer environment for both bikers and motorists. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is promoting the month of May as Bike Safety Month. The League of American Bicyclists is the official sponsor of this campaign, which will run the entire Month May.

The Law Offices of Wayne Grant supports programs that spread messages of safe bicycling and increases awareness among motorists and bicyclists alike.

Bicycle Accidents Facts:

Bicycle wrongful deaths accounted for 2 percent of all traffic fatalities, and cyclists made up 2 percent of all the people injured in auto accidents during the year.

In 2002, 662 riders were killed in bicycle accidents and an additional 48,000 were injured in bike accidents. During that year, bicycle riders accounted for 12 percent of all nonmotorist traffic deaths.

More than 47,000 riders have died in auto accidents in the United States since 1932.

These statistics are from the National Center of Statistics and Analysis. However, a person only needs to speak with an experienced cyclist to understand the risks faced by a bicycle involved in an auto accident.
