Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Regardless of which methods we utilize for transportation, there is an inherent risk for travelers. This is particularly true when traveling on roads and sidewalks alongside reckless and negligent drivers. Over the past decade, we have seen a drastic increase in the number of people who choose to ride bicycles to their destinations. Although we like to believe traveling outside of vehicles is a safe and effective alternative to using cars, trucks, and SUVs, these people are not out are harm’s way.
