Accidents involving bicycles can be especially devastating as bicyclists are not protected by a vehicle. While bicyclists often wear protective gear like helmets, they are still vulnerable parties on the road and impact with a vehicle can be deadly. Drivers must keep in mind that they share the road with bicyclists and need to remain aware of them.
