Bicycle Accidents in Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania, statistics have determined that approximately 1.6 percent of all traffic deaths stem from bicycle accidents. Though this seems like a small percentage, it is important to note that children make up a percentage of these accidents and fatalities. Children are not always as aware of the dangers of our roads, which means that they are more likely to lose their lives in these horrific accidents.
