With the rise in bicycle commuting and public bicycle rides, the number of fatalities occurring in bicycle accidents has risen to its highest level since 2006. This is not a record which the country should pride itself on taking, but is instead a reminder to all motorists to continue to keep watch for bicyclists in their lanes. In 2013, approximately 48,000 bicyclists were injured in accidents, although research indicates that only a fraction of actual bicycle accidents go reported to the police. While most cities have attempted to implement laws that protect bicyclists, it requires an overall effort by the majority of motorists on the roads to consciously provide bicyclists with a wide area to maneuver and to continuously be on the lookout for bicyclists onthe roadways.
