Car accidents: Cyclist hit and killed in Louisiana

While cyclists have the same rights to the road as the driver of a motor vehicle, they could face a variety of potential hazards that are unique to their chosen form of transportation. Bicycles are much smaller than other vehicles and are thus more difficult to see, and cyclists must take steps to increase their visibility to reduce the chances of a dangerous collision. Car accidents involving cyclists prove fatal far too often, and a recent incident in Louisiana has reportedly led to the death of a 59-year-old man.

Taking measures to reduce the odds of pedestrian accidents

As warmer weather approaches, many individuals in Louisiana may choose to opt out of driving a motor vehicle and travel from place to place on foot.

Since pedestrian accidents run the risk of being some of the most catastrophic incidents a person can experience, knowing the steps to take to reduce the odds of a collision could be essential to staying safe.

Following closely behind another vehicle can be a dangerous decision.
