If you are a regular cyclist, you must be aware of how vulnerable you are in an accident situation, and hopefully you wear as much protective gear as you can to try and reduce the severity of any injuries you may sustain.
When you first started riding your cycle, you didn’t have to have lessons, or pass a riding test to be allowed on our roads, you also do not need to be insured. But it is very wise to learn the Highway Code, so that you know the rules of the road, and this will hopefully help you avoid an accident.
But no amount of learning how to behave, helmets to protect your head, or other safety gear will prevent you from being injured in an accident that was not your fault. You cannot control the car driver who isn’t concentrating and doesn’t see you till it is too late to avoid hitting you, just like you cannot force the local council to repair the pothole that is obscured from view, and throws you from you bike.
These type of accidents happen every day to cyclists in the UK, and there are far too many that have their life changed by serious injuries, or do not survive the accident. There are constantly news reports, particularly in the larger cities, about accidents involving cyclists, often because they have been hit by a bus or an HGV. These huge vehicles can be turning corners or negotiating a roundabout and just not see the cyclist, sometimes not even realising they have hit someone.
