Q At what time do the most bicycle accidents in Boise occur?
Boise is one of the best places in which to bicycle, that is why it was named one of America’s best places to ride. Because of this, hundreds of bikers are on the road at any given time. Although bicycle accidents in Boise can occur at any time, bicyclists are more prone to becoming victims of accidents at certain times than others.
Sharing the road with motorists is always dangerous, but particularly during rush hour. Bicyclists are more likely to become involved in accidents between the hours of 8:00 am and 9:00 am, and 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. during the week.
It may not be a surprise that most bike accidents occur in the spring and summer months. After all, this is the time when bikers and motorists alike are enjoying the pleasant weather. Additionally, an increase in rain in the spring can also create dangerous conditions that can lead to collisions.
Urban areas are hotspots for bicycle and vehicle collisions, as bikers and motorists are often forced to share the same riding surfaces. Not surprisingly, a majority of the accidents occur at intersections, and injuries are typically worse on roads that have higher speed limits.
You do all you can do to stay safe when you ride—from wearing bright clothing to paying full attention to your surroundings—and it’s not fair when you are still the victim of an accident.
