Bicycle riders suffer a staggering number of serious injuries and fatalities in accidents involving motor vehicles, and those accidents are usually the fault of the motor vehicle drivers. In 2013, according to the NHTSA, 48,000 bicyclists were injured in traffic accidents in the United States and 743 were killed. As bike riders know, drivers of cars and trucks usually do not pay adequate attention to their surroundings, do not respect the rights of cyclists, and do not look for cyclists before making moves that can endanger their lives. All too often, bike riders are injured or killed by motorists who fail to check their blind spot before changing lanes, make right turns directly in front of oncoming bicyclists, sideswipe them traveling on the shoulder, open doors in front of them, drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, fail to stop at stop signs, pull out from driveways or side streets without looking, or otherwise proceed in a manner which risks the lives of cyclists.
