Over the last few years, gas prices have generally been on an upward trend. Knowing the expense associated with driving, particularly in local traffic, many people have turned to alternative modes of transportation. Many people have found that biking is an effective way to move around a city, in addition to getting exercise.
Despite many of the positive associations with bicycling in the city, there are still overwhelming safety concerns. Certainly, bikes are infinitely more fuel efficient than a motor vehicle, but they lack the physical protection of a car. Even when cyclists take precautions by wearing a helmet, a car-bicycle accident can result in fatal injuries and the potential for a wrongful death claim.
