Drivers are supposed to share the road with bicyclists. Yet, the sheer number of bicycle accidents across Minnesota demonstrates that motorists don't always do so.
Most fatal bike accidents happen when cars and bikes are traveling in the same direction. The driver ends up rear-ending or side-swiping the cyclist, leading to devastating injuries. Many collisions also happen at intersections.
According to research from MnDOT, drivers are at fault in these accidents the majority of the time. They frequently fail to notice cyclists because they're distracted, speeding or impaired. They often claim the bike "came out of nowhere" when, in reality, they simply weren't looking.
