May Is National Bike Month

Two Bikers With the month of May being National Bike Month, and the onset of warmer weather, more cyclists are taking to the roads. The prudent driver will exercise caution when encountering a bicycle rider.

A bicycle is considered a vehicle by North Carolina Law and cyclists are required to obey the same rules of the road as the driver of a car or truck.

Often times, however, automobile drivers do not treat cyclists as fellow motorists and tend to become impatient when behind a cyclist. Drivers must remember that unless they are maintaining a safe distance and a proper lookout, a seemingly minor impact with a bicycle can cause serious injury and even death.

In North Carolina in 2008, 32 cyclists were killed. This represents 2.2% of all traffic fatalities in the state, and exceeds the national average, which is 1.9% .

Our accident and injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you may be entitled to.
