Bicycle Accidents in Arizona
There are many dangers that bicyclists face when sharing the road with motor vehicles. Some of the most common dangers are when drivers fail to yield to bicyclists, turn without looking, and drivers who cause door accidents.
Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists and are entitled to use the full lane of traffic. However, many drivers ignore this fact and often try to share the lane with a bicyclist, resulting in an accident. Drivers who fail to yield to bicyclists not only put themselves at risk but also put the bicyclist in danger.
Another common danger that bicyclists face is when drivers turn without looking. This often happens at intersections and can result in a serious accident. When turning, drivers must always yield to oncoming traffic, including bicyclists. Failing to do so can result in a collision that could seriously injure or even kill a bicyclist.
Dooring is another hazard that bicyclists face on a daily basis. This occurs when a driver opens their door into the path of an oncoming cyclist. Dooring can cause serious injuries and is completely preventable if drivers take the time to look before they open their doors.
