An increase in the use of cycles in recent years could have been prompted by a desire to improve fitness, reduce travel costs by saving money on petrol, or to lessen a carbon footprint. Whatever the reason, it is clear that cyclists are very vulnerable to road traffic accidents and cycling collisions.
How can cyclists help themselves avoid cycling collisions?
One of the most obvious ways to protect yourself whilst out cycling is to wear a properly fitted strong, protective helmet on every journey.
Staying alert and anticipating the actions of drivers can be easier said than done in heavy traffic. Commuting to work by bike is particularly hazardous.
The aftermath of cycling collisions
It can take a long time to get over a cycling accident, even if your injuries are not serious. Having the confidence to go back out on your bike is not easy and you may even feel that it is just not worth the stress involved.
