All bicyclists know that cars do not always share the road. Bicycle collisions often include severe injuries with lasting consequences. Of the 1,089 bicyclist deaths in 2019, 712 (65%) died in motor-vehicle crashes and 377 in other incidents, according to National Center for Health Statistics mortality data. The continual use of smart phones by drivers while driving makes this recreational activity an even greater risk. Bicyclists have a right to use the roads however and motorists are to be alert.
