Alabama Car Wreck Attorney Discusses Why Many Bicycle Accidents Occur and How To Avoid Them

With motor vehicles and bicycles sharing the roadways in Alabama, safety and awareness is everyone’s responsibility. Collisions between bicyclists and automobiles can result in severe and sometimes fatal injuries. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that nationwide the number of bicyclist deaths related to automobile collisions increased 13 percent from 2014 to 2015, and is the highest it has been in nearly a decade.
