I put more miles on my bike than my car in 2021. Sticking to a few rules of the road kept me safe and accident-free, and I’d like to share them with you.
“I didn’t see them!” That’s usually the first thing someone says when they’ve been involved in a vehicle-pedestrian crash. The latest statistical year shows that 5,977 pedestrians were killed in U.S. traffic crashes – one every 1.5 hours, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration figures. In addition, 129,000 pedestrians were treated for non-fatal crash-related injuries. While these figures remained about steady compared with the prior year, the numbers are still alarming.
