Cycling Accidents in Connecticut:
The most common cause of bicycle accidents in Connecticut involves the drivers of cars, trucks, and buses failing to see, yield or “share the road” with bicyclists.
These situations often occur when drivers are distracted by activities like texting or talking on cell phones, driving while intoxicated or simply not paying attention to the bicyclists that may be right in front of them.
The Rights of Cyclists:
Did you know that in Connecticut, car and truck drivers must stay a safe distance from all cyclists they meet on the road? Connecticut law states: “safe distance means not less than three feet when the driver of a vehicle overtakes and passes a person riding a bicycle.” Failure to do so can lead to fines. Connecticut is currently one of twenty-two states with this requirement.
Many of the attorneys at RisCassi & Davis enjoy the sport of cycling. And for almost a decade we have supported major Connecticut rides like the Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride – helping raise millions of dollars for the fight against cancer. We know cycling, and we understand the dangers.
