Bicyclists are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads at any given time. Drivers are supposed to watch out for these vulnerable parties but this does not always occur. In the blink of an eye, a severe bicycle accident could take place due to the outright recklessness of a driver who was not paying close attention to the roads around them. More bicycle accidents occur in California than in many other states in the U.S. Between 2016 and 2018, it was reported that approximately 455 cyclists lost their lives in horrific accidents.
