While riding a bicycle is good for both your health and for the environment, and remains a cost-effective way of travel it also comes with dangers that are inherent due to the lack of protection a cyclist has, and due to the nonchalance of those driving cars on the same roadways.

According to data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,376 pedestrians and 818 bicyclists were killed in 2015 in accidents involving a motor vehicle. This accounts for nearly 18% of the total 35,092 motor vehicle fatalities that occurred that year. For bicyclists, that means an average of over two people a day lose their lives in a car accident.
