Simply due to the quantity of vehicles sharing the roads these days, bicycle accidents have become more frequent. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were nearly 800 deaths and over 500,000 emergency room visits for bicycle-related accidents in 2010.
The danger of a bicycle-automobile accident is that the bicyclist is almost always going to suffer a horrible injury as they're going up against a vehicle that outweighs them significantly.
