California is a big state, and it is not easy to get around without a vehicle. Mass transit is available but is often crowded and unreliable. Cities and towns in California are trying to address this issue by making bicycles and scooter travel safer so they can avoid vehicles.
High-speed vehicles and congested traffic both pose hazards to bikers in California, which often led to bicycle accidents. Records have shown by the California Highway Patrol that male bicyclists are more likely to be killed in a bicycle accident. In 2003 and 2015, seven-eights of fatal bicycle deaths are men or boys.
The records show that more men ride bicycles than women. It also shows that men are most likely to bike through dangerous areas compared to women. The documents can also mean that men are more likely to explore dangerous roads. Risky roads are those without bike lanes and have higher traffic speeds. The drivers who pass through these roads have very little room to maneuver. Hazardous roads also give drivers less time to react. Biking in the center of the way causes drivers to be angry, but it also increases the chances of being seen.
If you wanted to avoid fatal collisions, the best thing to do is to not drive on these risky roads. If you are in a bike accident, have yourself checked by a medical professional and consult a personal injury lawyer for tips on how to file a claim for the damages.
