Car-bicycle accidents in Ohio can be avoided

Car accidents can result in serious injuries, especially when a car collides with a bicycle. Car-bicycle collisions are very common in Ohio and throughout the country, and recent reports found that both motorists and bicyclists are often to blame for these accidents.

Many motorists and bicyclists don't know how to safely share the road with each other and that is causing many of the car-bicycle accidents in Ohio, a senior planner for the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission said. Sharing the road with bicycles is a way to keep everyone safe on the road but unfortunately, many drivers and bicyclists in Ohio don't seem to know how to.

Data from the Ohio Department of Public Safety on car-bicycle accidents show that over 6,000 bicyclists suffered injuries from a collision with a car, with over 3,500 of those injured requiring emergency medical attention. The most common type of accident happened when a motorist was making a right or left turn, and 59 percent of accidents happened in intersections in Ohio, according to the report.

One of the main reasons so many bicyclists are injured in these collisions is because they were not wearing helmets. The report by the Department of Public Safety found that more than 50 percent of bicyclists injured in crashes were not wearing helmets.

Motorists and bicyclists need to be aware of each other on the road and take steps to reduce the chances of getting into an accident. Motorists should be careful when passing or turning near bicyclists, and bicyclists need to follow the rules of the road. This means obeying traffic signs and signals and not weaving in and out of traffic.

Motorists and bicyclists should take steps to share the road and be respectful of each other when traveling in Ohio to keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of car-bicycle accidents.
