Additionally, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, each year approximately 500,000 people in the US are treated in hospital emergency rooms for bicycle-related injuries. More than 50 percent of those bicycle-related injuries are children aged 15 years and younger.
On public roadways, vehicle codes mandate that bicyclists follow the law, just like other motorists. Motorists should allow a minimum of three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist on the road, yield to cyclists at intersections and watch for cyclists when making turns.
