Bicycle Traffic Accidents

Biking is an increasingly popular choice for urban transportation. San Antonio was named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. That means more cyclists than ever are hitting the streets and merging with traffic. Not all motorists are accustomed to sharing lanes with bicycle commuters, and not all cyclists understand how traffic laws apply to them. This has led to increased injuries and fatalities: emergency rooms treat approximately 50,000 people in the US for bicycle-related injuries each year.

Many car and bicycle accidents are caused by reckless or inattentive drivers. They may be speeding, distracted by their cell phone, passing through a bike lane, or driving while intoxicated. According to the US Department of Transportation, Cyclists are also guilty of biking while intoxicated, biking and texting, or ignoring traffic signals like stop signs and red lights. Sadly, it is cyclists who are most vulnerable in a bicycle traffic collision. Injuries can be severe, particularly if the person on a bike was not wearing a helmet.

How Do Bicycle Accidents in Traffic Occur?

  • Motorist or cyclist loses control.
  • Motorist or cyclist makes a turning error.
  • Motorist or cyclist fails to yield for signs and signals.
  • Motorist collides with cyclist while pulling in or out of curbside parking.
  • Bus or delivery vehicles collide with cyclist while crossing bike lane to stop alongside the curb.
  • Among children, most vehicle-related bicycle crashes happen on minor-roads, not at intersections, and are most often the result of bicyclist’s behavior, such as swerving in front of a car.

Who is at Fault in a Car and Bicycle Accident?

The Federal Highway Administration has stated that “fault is difficult to determine” in car and bicycle collisions. Bicycles are treated as vehicles in Texas state traffic law. Like other traffic accidents, fault lies with the negligent party. Evidence is needed to determine who had the right of way when the collision occurred, and who violated the rules of the road.
