Bicycle accidents seem to be increasing across the state, especially in Central Texas, where bicycling is a very popular pastime. Like motorcycle accidents, bicycle crashes and the injuries resulting can be deadly, resulting in head injuries and other injuries to the body when a cyclist is struck by a much larger vehicle. In addition, bicyclists have much less protection while riding, making them more vulnerable to serious personal injuries.
Riding with traffic and following the same traffic rules as automobiles, cyclists are often struck from behind, catching them off guard and making it more difficult for them to react quickly enough or avoid the an auto collision with a bicycle.
