Bicycles vs. Cars – The Battle for the Road

Environmental concerns and higher gas prices have lead more and more North Texans to start bicycling regularly. The Dallas-Fort Worth area has been behind the rest of the country in making our streets more biker friendly. What new laws have been passed to protect cyclists, are not regularly enforced, and many drivers remain unaware of their responsibilities towards bicyclists.

The number of accidents involving cars and bikes continues to increase with auto vehicles more often at fault. When Texas-sized vehicles collide with bikes the injuries can be serious and even fatal. Head and spinal cord injuries are all too common in biking accidents.

What Leads to Bicycle Crashes?

Here’s a list of drivers’ most common mistakes:

  • Turning directly in front of a bicyclist without giving the biker time to adjust
  • Pulling out of a driveway or parking spot in front of a bike without looking
  • Failing to yield to an intersection
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Speeding
  • Getting distracted while driving
  • Driving while drunk or impaired
  • Simply failing to see a bicyclist – this is particularly common at night or in poor weather
