As biking grows in popularity in cities across Virginia, so does the number of accidents involving cyclists. Bike accidents are often very one-sided, resulting in irreparable damage to the bicycle and serious injury to the cyclist. And, though some people are quick to blame the cyclists in these situations, it is all of our responsibility to be aware of our surroundings, share the roads, and help make Virginia a safer place for bicyclists and motorists alike. The Virginia Legislature has recognized the risks that cyclists face on the roads, and has passed a new law aimed at reducing these risks and keeping cyclists safe.
