Vulnerable riders and bicycle accidents
As with motorcycle accidents, the main causes of bicycle accidents are often:
- Driver negligence
- Rider error
- Road faults
Although the cyclist is riding considerably slower than the biker ― and the force of any impact should therefore be less ― there are many aspects of the bicycle that make it even more dangerous to the rider than a motorcycle, including:
- A cyclist is more exposed and susceptible to serious injury or death from a collision with a larger, heavier motor vehicle because of the smaller size and lighter weight of the bicycle compared to the motorcycle
- A bicycle is also much quieter and much less visible than a motorcycle
- Handling limitations and sensitivity to road faults is much more magnified with a bicycle than a motorcycle
