Bicycling in Sammamish is a common pastime for families and individuals. The beautiful scenery, bike trails, and rides along the water make bike riding an enjoyable family activity, as well as an excellent way to get exercise. Unfortunately, many of those cyclists are riding alongside busy streets with motor vehicles. Where you have bicycles and cars together, accidents will occur.
When an auto-bicycle accident does occur in Sammamish, it is almost invariably the bicyclist who suffers injuries. Riders’ relatively minimal protective gear does little when colliding with a car going much faster than they are. Many of these bicycle accidents in Sammamish result in severe injuries and sometimes fatalities.
The most common reason that these accidents occur include:
- Drivers in the bike lane instead of their own lane
- Drivers failing to notice or yield to a bicyclist
- Children or young riders being overlooked due to size/height
- Poor road conditions
- Failure to follow appropriate traffic signals or laws
