Every day, New Jersey residents enjoy the convenience, exercise and fun that comes from riding a bike. For some, it is a reliable mode of transportation. For others, it could be a way to exercise, a competitive endeavor or an outlet to recharge and enjoy the fresh air. However, cycling accidents can and do happen. Every cyclist has to be actively aware of impending dangers, mindful of their own behavior and committed to practicing safe cycling habits to reduce their chances of being involved in a serious accident.
Pedestrians are more than people walking in a street; in fact, a pedestrian can be someone running, cycling, riding a skateboard, scooter or rollerblades, and even citizens operating motorized scooters. Chances are, every Pennsylvanian has been a pedestrian at one point, meaning each is at risk of experiencing an injury caused by the negligence of someone else.
