Accident victim's family wants tougher tests for Maryland drivers

Police use DNA to find Maryland hit-and-run crash suspect

Bicyclists who share the road with cars and other vehicles undergo risk every time they pedal out into the street. They are much less protected than motorists and therefore more prone to serious injury in the event of an accident. But that doesn't mean they don't have to right to travel safely. Maryland law says that drivers must treat bicycles like any other vehicle on the road, and leave at least 3 feet of space between a vehicle and a bike. Drivers should also reduce their speed when passing bicycles.

Negligence factors in two serious accidents in Maryland

Recently, a pleasant ride on an Anne Arundel County road in Maryland turned into a fatal accident for an unfortunate bicyclist. The bicyclist was struck from behind by a driver who said he did not see the rider in time to avoid the accident. The road did not have a bike lane or shoulder, and there was little natural lighting when the collision happened at 7:30 p.m. The bicyclist only had a makeshift headlight turned on and a small red LED flasher on the rear of the bike that may not have been turned on at the time of the accident.

Unfortunately, the additional traffic on the road can lead to additional accidents on the road.
