When families set out to enjoy their El Paso neighborhoods, they remind their children regularly that it is important to defensively look out for vehicles to avoid a bicycle accident — even in their own neighborhoods. The reason cars are often involved in a bicycle accident is that there is negligence involved from the beginning, so by the time the driver realizes there is a person on a bike in front of their car, it’s too late.
The sheer size of the vehicle causes such great impact during a bicycle accident that it could kill a child or an adult with a single strike. Even if death is not the result, long-term injuries are often recorded upon the physical review of a physician. Even with helmets, pads and bright colored clothing, a bicycle accident can happen in a matter of seconds if the person operating the vehicle isn’t paying attention.
