Would You Consider This A "Hit & Run" Accident?

Imagine you were walking in the designated pedestrian section of the American River Parkway Trail and you were run into by a bicycle from behind. Imagine further you are a legend in the running community and the crash resulted in five facial fractures, a fractured skull, a broken hand, two broken teeth and serious lacerations over much of your face and body. Finally, Imagine the person who hit you and then fled dropped his cell phone... the same phone that bystanders used to summon paramedics. The last piece of the puzzle is the District Attorney's office cannot determine if a felony has been committed and cannot use the information from the cell phone to identify the bike rider.

Commuting to work on a bicycle can be dangerous

Vision Zero rejects the notion that traffic crashes are simply "accidents," but instead preventable incidents that can and must be systematically addressed.

Despite how often this refrain is repeated, there are many ways in which drivers often put cyclists in danger. In some cases, this stems from a deep-seeded resentment for cyclists in general. In other cases, drivers just don't know or follow safe practices, and they inadvertently cause the danger. Here are just a few of the risks cyclists face:

Gas And Brake Pedal Accidents... Not Just For Grandma and Grandpa

Hitting the gas when you mean to hit the brake happens to just about every driver at one time or another. It may happen due to distraction or just because you weren't paying complete attention to what you were doing. The reality is this lapse could be enough to result in a serious car accident.
