Bicycle Accidents are on the Rise in Queens and Long Island

Bicycle Riding is one of the most popular pastimes on Long Island. Aside from being a healthy hobby, bicycles are a primary source of transportation for many people in the Freeport area. Some people, such as messengers, depend on their bicycles to earn a living.

Every government level, from New York State to Nassau County and every incorporated Village in Nassau County, has laws about bikes and bicycle riders.

Unfortunately, bicycle accidents are common on Long Island and across New York. Bicycle fatalities increased across New York in 2019. 

Since the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic came to New York, the number of bicycle riders has increased. With the higher number of riders, injuries and fatalities have also increased.

Bicycle Accidents at Stop Signs and Traffic Lights

Most bicycle accidents occur at intersections with stop signs or traffic lights. Not all intersections with stop signs require vehicles to stop in every direction. If a bicyclist has a stop sign, but the driver from another direction does not, if the bicycle rider proceeds through the intersection, the driver might not have enough time to react.

A significant factor in vehicle and bike accidents is related to “right of way.” As the law considers bicycles as vehicles, bicycle riders and drivers must respect each other on the road and understand the laws regarding the right of way.

Being “doored” by a parked car

Another common injury suffered by bicycle riders is when a person in a parked car, either the driver or passenger opens a door without noticing a bicycle rider. The bicyclist might not have time to react to the open door and hits the open door and the person getting out of the car. It is the responsibility of the vehicle occupants to ensure it is safe to open a door.

Bicycle Riders are Required to Follow All Traffic Laws

Bike accidents can be devastating for the rider. As such, the bicyclist’s responsibility is to follow the local traffic laws and operate the bicycle safely. Safely operating a bike means to be wearing a helmet and following all the local traffic laws.

Bicyclists must know that they should always ride in the same direction of traffic. When you ride against traffic, it is difficult for drivers to see you. Drivers often do not have time to react to an unsafe situation when a bike is going against traffic. The consequences of driving against traffic can be dire.
