Dangerous Bicyclist Behaviors

While many people think that accidents involving motor vehicles and bicycles are always the fault of the drivers, this is actually not true in a number of cases. Bicyclists might also engage in dangerous behaviors that increase the chances of an accident occurring. And, as with any other accident, the injuries resulting from these accidents can be extreme and may cause both physical and financial harm for the innocent people involved.

Several Common / Dangerous Actions

Bicyclists abuse traffic laws on occasion, but it only takes one instance to involve multiple people in a serious traffic accident. These accidents can be caused by a variety of dangerous bicyclist behaviors, including:

  • Running red lights
  • Coasting through stop signs
  • Failure to signal turns or lane change intentions
  • Swerving through traffic lanes
  • Not remaining in designated biking lanes

Each one of these behaviors is unsafe, and not only threatens the safety of the bicyclist engaging in them, but also that of other motorists. In these situations, however, the bicyclist may potentially be legally and financially responsible for the repercussions of their actions.
