New York City is a bicycle-friendly city. The New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) gives out free bicycle helmets and hopes to dramatically increase the number of bicycle commuters by 2012. Further, NYCDOT says that bicycle riders have the same rights to the road as motor vehicles.
Even so, many bicycle accidents occur in New York City. Sometimes motorists follow too closely, pass too closely or simply do not notice bicyclists. When this occurs, the results are tragic. Bicyclists can suffer spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and even fatalities.
