In a car versus bicycle collision, the driver will always come out healthier with a vehicle that still runs. The cyclist may have severe injuries, even from a low speed collision. They just don’t have 2 tons of steel protecting them.

If you do hit a bicyclist, a car accident attorney in Bradenton, FL, might be able to help you mount a defense, but it is better for everyone involved if the accident never happens. It may be good to keep in mind that bicyclists are helping you as a driver. They are keeping the air clean and keeping gas prices down. It may also help to remember that they have to do a lot to keep their vehicle moving. All you need to do is push your foot down a little to go a lot faster. They may be causing a moment of inconvenience, but they are giving more back than most people realize.
