In any busy city, bicycles are a common form of transportation. Riding a bicycle is good for the environment and a great form of regular exercise. Unfortunately, many drivers get frustrated by bicyclists and forget that motor vehicles are generally required to share the road with bicyclists. Tragically, there are nearly 500,000 bicycle incidents every year, and almost 1,000 bicyclists die annually as a result of their injuries. Being involved in a bicycle collision is very scary, and many people are confused about what to do following an incident.
