Police in California investigate fatal bike crash

People in California choose to use a bicycle as a form of transportation for a variety of different reasons. In addition to personal health benefits, using bicycles can save money and protect the environment. Unfortunately, bicyclists often face harm from the negligent behavior of others on the roadway. For example, police are currently investigating a bike crash that resulted in a fatality.

At times, justice may seem to move slowly for the loved ones of fatal accident victims. For one family, they likely feel that justice was finally served after a fatal hit-and-run accident took the life of their loved one. A purported negligent driver recently pleaded guilty for his part in a collision that resulted in the death of a California man.

Most cities throughout America have begun to change their roadways to provide more space and safety for bicyclists. Because of this, more people are using bicycles as transportation than ever before. Unfortunately, bicyclists are easy for car drivers to miss, which can result in serious consequences when an accident happens. A recent hit-and-run bicycle accident in California resulted in fatal injuries to the cyclist and charges for the tow truck driver that hit him.

As the height of summer has arrived, greater numbers of bicyclists have taken to the streets in California and elsewhere around the country.

Most progressive cities across America have begun to change their roadways to provide space and safety for people who want to travel by bicycle. Additionally, many have added bike rental stations to make environmentally sound travel available to more of their citizens. Because of this, more people are traveling via bicycles than ever before. Unfortunately, a bicyclist is easy for a driver to miss, especially when adding the factor of intoxication. A recent article describes a tragic accident that occurred in California.

San Francisco "Ride of Silence" hopes to raise bike awareness

In the past several years, most metropolitan cities in the United States have started adding bike lanes on in-town roadways that provide safety for the ever-increasing number of people using bicycles for transportation. Though slower to develop on the east coast, most progressive cities in the west have long provided designated bicycle lanes for their citizens. As these changes take place, however, motorists are not typically educated in bike awareness, and this disconnect continues to result in bicyclists' injuries and deaths in San Francisco.
