According to NHTSA, 630 pedacyclists were killed and an additional 51,000 were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2009. One decade later and they are just as present on Texas roads.
Because bicycles should only be operated on streets, roadways, bike paths, routes, and areas specifically designated for bicycle riding, as stated in Texas Motor Vehicles Laws, both parties should be aware of their presence on the road. If not, it can result in accidents such as the accident above.
