Every six hours a bicyclist is fatally injured in America. Head injuries account for seventy-five percent of all serious injuries and deaths from bicycle accidents. Negligent drivers are a major factor in bicycle accidents. If a driver makes a turn, pulls out of a driveway or alley, or opens a car door without being observant they are putting bicyclists in danger. Injuries sustained to bicyclists may be fatal because of the lack of protection that a bicycle provides. There is no competition between a bicycle and a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds. Drivers must be held accountable for the injuries that they cause.
