Dangers of Riding a Bicycle Without a Helmet

By: Admin

Recently there was another Central Florida accident involving a bicycle and a car. This time it was a young girl who was just learning to ride a bike. She was hit by a car that was attempting to pass her. Apparently she was not an experienced bike rider and had wobbled into the path of the vehicle. Unfortunately, she was not wearing a helmet and has some significant injuries as reported by the Orlando Sentinel. Central Florida is one of the most dangerous places to ride a bicycle. Typically, when cars are passing they do not give enough room between the cyclist and the car. Central Florida is in the process of building bike lanes, but there are not nearly enough and the cyclists are forced to share the road with cars. In an accident, the car will always win and the cyclist is at severe risk of injury or death. Because of the dangers involved, wearing a helmet is a necessity in Central Florida. The helmet may mess up your hair but the asphalt will damage your brain. Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre can help answer questions regarding accidents. Call us today. (407) 841-7699
