Organizations Working To Reduce North Carolina Bicycle Accidents

The warm weather of summer combined with schools being out of session for vacation means more bicycles are on the road in North Carolina. Unfortunately, this higher volume of cyclists also means a potential increase in the number of North Carolina bicycle accidents that are recorded. In fact, the North Carolina Department of Transportation reports the months between May and August had the highest bicycle accident counts from 2008 to 2012.

Both the police department in King, North Carolina and the Stokes County Health Department (SCHD) are working to keep North Carolina’s cyclists safe by launching a campaign that is aimed at raising awareness of the importance of sharing the road amongst cyclists and motorists alike.

Reports from The Stokes News state they are achieving this goal by offering bike lights and reflectors to cyclists, as well as bumper stickers and yard signs printed with safety slogans to motorists.

Health Director for the SCHD, Scott Lenhart, says common sense is the key to safety when it comes to encounters between cyclists and vehicles on the road. He added that practicing caution when passing and making turns is vital to reducing the number of North Carolina bicycle accidents that are recorded each year.
