People in New Jersey may not be well-informed about the ways in which most bicycle accidents occur and what they can do to prevent being involved in one. Because bikes are a popular mode of transportation, it is important for bikers to understand how they can be safe.
Although there are many causes of bicycle accidents, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center says that most people are harmed by cars. Collisions with cars account for 29 percent of the injuries which occur, while failing to pay attention to the road only accounts for 13 percent of these injuries. It is difficult to know just how many bicycles crashes occur each year, as this kind of accident is not often documented by law enforcement.
