Bicycle Accidents

  ITARDA INFORMATION in its previous No.46 issue introduced frequent accident patterns involving bicycles. Reported in this issue will be the results of a detailed investigation into human factors underlying bicycle accidents. While bicycles are a handy type of vehicle that can be ridden virtually anywhere and without a driver's permit, accident records unfortunately indicate that handiness is often the cause of a bicycle accident. This report is addressed mainly to bicyclists, but automobile drivers can also find it useful in avoiding accidents with bicyclists.
