Each year, dozens of Connecticut residents are killed in bicycle accidents. Thousands are injured in Connecticut bicycle accidents. Statistically, 60% of all bicycle fatalities are due to the negligence of motorists. Connecticut is an attractive area for bicyclists. Our beautiful roads and magnificent scenery in Connecticut and Fairfield County are both an asset and an occasional hazard. Like most states, our cyclists must share the road with drivers. Unfortunately, the size of the bicycle and drivers’ inexperience in handling the presence of cyclists has proven tragic for some. Most drivers, for instance are unaware that a bicyclist has the same rights as a pedestrian and often has the right of way over the motorist. In addition, the cyclist is severely unprotected, as against a car and even the road itself.
