Here on the Central Coast, many people use bicycles to commute and as a means of exercise. As a result, cycling accidents are on the rise. According to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, there were more than 50,000 bicycle related emergency room visits in California for 2014.
Cyclists have a legal right to the road giving bicycles the same rights and responsibilities as all drivers.
Due to the comparison between a vehicle versus a bicycle, an accident like this can often cause catastrophic injuries leaving a cyclist with broken limbs, neck and back injuries, scarring, etc.
