New Report on Bicycle Accidents Reveals Surprising Statistics
If you ever needed a compelling argument for why it’s crucial to wear a helmet, there is a new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association that may convince you. The report identifies some key differences in cycling accidents and injuries, especially those where motor vehicles are involved. The data may surprise you.
The GHSA report, which analyzes data from 1975-2015, notes one major finding: while bicyclist fatalities on U.S. roadways hit an all-time low in 2010, they are now on the rise again, accounting for at least 2% of all roadway fatalities.
