What are some common causes of bicycle accidents on the road?

Several factors contribute to bicycle accidents on the road. One common cause is driver negligence, such as failing to yield to cyclists, making sudden turns or lane changes without signaling, or driving distractedly. Another factor is inadequate infrastructure, including poorly designed or maintained bike lanes, lack of signage or signals for cyclists, and road hazards like potholes or debris. Additionally, cyclist behavior can also contribute to accidents, such as running red lights or stop signs, riding against traffic, or not yielding to pedestrians. Understanding these common causes can help cyclists and drivers alike take preventative measures to improve road safety for everyone.
