Pedestrians and bicyclists face some unique challenges when they are moving along the roadways. Not only do they have to watch for obstacles on the sidewalk or roadway, they also have to watch out for drivers who might not be watching out for them. The disturbing fact is that pedestrians and bicyclists are at the mercy of motorists.
When motorists aren’t giving their full attention to their driving, they run the risk of having an accident. When you pit a heavy car against a person who is walking or on a bike, there is no doubt that the car will win. That means that the pedestrian or bicyclist is likely to suffer from injuries that can affect his or her quality of life.
