Bicycle Accidents in Pennsylvania
Riding a bicycle is a healthy decision to make and also a fun way to participate in a type of outdoor recreation in Pennsylvania. However, many people do not know that there are many risks when it comes to riding a bicycle, especially when you are around motor vehicles. Bicyclists have very few protections from harm in the event of an accident, which means that they are likely to lose their lives in the event of an accident. In 2017, it was reported that a total of 1,141 bicycle crashes took place in Pennsylvania, with only handfuls of these accidents leading to fatalities.
