WLOS ABC Channel 13 News just reported on the disturbing fact that North Carolina was recently ranked the 10th most dangerous state or cyclists. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in 2011, North Carolina had 2.59 cyclist deaths per million people. Florida came in first place with 6.36 deaths per million people.
Cyclists in Asheville and across North Carolina are encouraged to take appropriate measures to increase their personal safety while cycling. Helmets, flashing lights and high-visibility clothing are three great ways to protect yourself while cycling the roadways. Unfortunately, even cyclists who take all possible safety precautions can still get struck by distracted, careless or impaired drivers.
