What To Know About Bike And E-Bike Accidents In California
Injuries to bike riders in a car crash are usually severe, as cyclists do not have the protection of a motor vehicle (steel cage). With the presence of e-bikes, or electronically powered bikes, increasing throughout California, the frequency of accidents involving them is increasing as well. Sadly, many of these accidents involve minors as the victims. The fault for the crash often lies with the driver of the car for driving negligently.
Some of the most common causes of bicycle and e-bike accidents include:
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Texting while driving
- Left turns
- Failure to yield
- Running a stop sign or traffic signal
- Distracted driving
- Glare or weather conditions
