Similar to motorcyclists, bicyclists are just as vulnerable on the roads. According to the NHTSA, 30% of bicycle accident injuries occur when hit by a vehicle. In addition, these injuries are often the result of the driver not paying attention.
Other things that factor into these accidents are road conditions and driving at night. Majority of bicycle and vehicle accidents are likely to happen when it is dark outside.
Additionally, hit-and-run collisions account for almost 6 deaths per day and there is at least one per minute in the U.S.
