Bicycle Accidents in Fargo
Everybody makes different decisions based on their own set of circumstances in terms of their preferred mode of transportation. No matter which transportation method they select, staying safe while out on the roadway is a burden that is shared by everyone who uses it.
Bicyclists in North Dakota are, by state law, afforded the exact same privileges, rights, and responsibilities as the driver of a traditional car or truck when they are out on the road. Bicyclists are, however, much more exposed than a vehicle occupant due to the fact that they do not have the security that is naturally provided by a car’s steel frame and various safety features.
In the United States, in 2016, 840 bicycle riders were killed in motor vehicle collisions. This number marks a 1.3% increase from the year before, which has a recorded total of 829 bicycle accident-related fatalities.
