Bicycle Accidents in New Jersey

Bicycle accidents cause a much higher incidence of death and injury per accident than do car accidents. In other words, if you are involved in a vehicular accident and you are on a bicycle, you are 3 times more likely to be injured and 14 times more likely to be killed. Helmet laws, enacted in many states, are helping to reduce these numbers, but bicyclists still are at greater risk of death or injury than those in passenger vehicles. It is always wise to take precautions when riding a bicycle, including:

  • Wear a helmet
  • Obey the traffic laws
  • Remember that you are not as large or as visible as an automobile, so do all you can to increase your own visibility, such as riding with the headlight on at all times and wearing reflective clothing after dark.
  • Road hazards have a much greater affect on a small two-wheel vehicle, so watch for bumps, cracks in the road, loose gravel or any other condition that might cause you to lose control.
