You Have Little Protection When Hit While Walking Or Biking

Bicyclists and pedestrians can be injured even when they take all the necessary precautions. These individuals, however, often do not fare well against drivers who control much larger, heavier vehicles and are engaging in dangerous or distracting behavior such as:

  • Texting while driving, putting on makeup or engaging in some other type of distracted driving
  • Failing to give bicyclists or pedestrians sufficient space or the right of way
  • Failing to see a bicyclist or pedestrian crossing the street

Behaviors like these can cause innocent bicyclists and pedestrians to suffer serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and fatal injuries.
