Knowing how to ride a bicycle starts at childhood and lasts a lifetime. Biking is a healthy and eco-friendly mode of transportation, not to mention fun. While the exposure to natural elements feels great on bicycle rides, it also provides less protection in accidents. More often than not, bicyclists injured in car accidents will require emergency trauma care and may need extensive medical treatment. Many will also miss work and lose significant income, as well as experience pain and suffering.
In Florida, bicycles are considered as vehicles, and bicyclists are drivers which means cyclists have the same right to use the public roads as motor vehicles. But sadly, even when bicyclists follow the rules, most bicycle crashes are caused by distracted or otherwise negligent automobile operations.
