This increase in bike riders has also increased the number of accidents involving bikes and cars. Many of these crashes are due to drivers not paying enough attention and being neglectful. People who ride bikes are more likely to get seriously injured in a crash because they are not as well protected as those who drive or ride in vehicles.
