Bicycle Accidents in Nevada
Bicycle accidents are not as common as other accidents on Nevada roads. However, when they do happen, they tend to lead to some of the most catastrophic harm. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2013, approximately 2.5 deaths happened out of every one million Nevada residents in bicycle accidents.
