New York bicycle crashes can be fatal. Riding a bicycle
in NYC can be risky. Maintaining control is more difficult on two wheels, and when collisions happen, bicyclists are at greater risk of serious injury or death because they don't have an enclosed vehicle for protection.
Common causes of bicycle crashes include:
Vehicles turning across path of cyclist
Cyclist riding into the path of a motor vehicle
Cyclist turning right from a major road and from a minor road
Child cyclist not abiding by NY street laws.
Twenty cyclists died in traffic crashes in the last NYC fiscal year, up from 16
in FY 2015, and 14 in FY 2014. Overall traffic fatalities fell 5.2% over the
same period, from 249 in FY 2015 to 236 in FY 2016. Pedestrian, motorcyclist,
