Hit-and-Run Accident Leaves Bicyclist with Serious Brain Injury: An Encinitas woman recently suffered a serious traumatic brain injury after being hit by a car while riding her bike. According to reports, she and her husband were on their way back from getting pizza with some friends when the accident occurred. The woman was riding behind her husband when a car came from nowhere and swerved into the lane. The woman bounced onto the hood of the car. She clung to it for a distance and then fell into the road. The driver sped away. The car was a 1993-2000 silver or white Mercedes. Authorities are asking anyone who might have information on the accident to step forward.

Which Parts of the Bicycle Master Plan Does the City Think Need Work?: There have been several proposals from San Diego bicycling advocates looking to make the city friendlier to cyclists. Many of them have received praise from city representatives, but not all of them. Officials have agreed with 25 of the 32 proposals in the plan, which originated with the Bicycle Advisory Committee. Some will take longer than hoped for, however, and others might need some work. Of the seven proposals that the city did not agree with, only one was labeled a bad idea. That idea was to revisit the 2013 bicycle master plan and update it using information from a 2015 climate action plan. The other six were criticized due to budget constraints, lack of staff and other feasibility issues. Proponents vs. Opponents of New Bike Proposals While there have been many opponents of the bike plan who say that spending taxpayer money on little-used bike lanes and narrowing of...

Kids and Bicycle Safety: Picking the Right Helmet: The best protection your child can have while riding is a helmet. But how do you select the right helmet for your child? It’s not enough to just pick the one that has the Batman design your child likes best. Safety is the most important part of picking the right helmet. Young people are especially prone to bicycle injuries. Children ages five and older as well as young adults have the highest rates of bicycle injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control. They account for almost 60 percent of bicycle injuries requiring U.S. emergency room visits. A helmet can reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury by up to 85 percent. When selecting a helmet, look for a Consumer Product Safety Committee (CPSC) sticker inside the helmet. Never buy a helmet for your child to grow into. It should fit based on the current size of the child’s head....

Drunk Motorcyclist Plows Through Group of Cyclists: Getting behind the wheel after you’ve been drinking is a bad idea. Getting behind the handlebars of a motorcycle? Also a bad idea. According to the California Highway Patrol, a man from Clovis lost control of his Harley Davidson while riding in Fresno County. He veered off the pavement and while trying to regain control of his motorcycle, he hit a group of three men riding bicycles. All three men were taken to a nearby medical center with major injuries. The perpetrator suffered minor injuries which were treated at the hospital before he was booked into county jail on felony DUI charges. Drunk Motorcycling Normally, when someone suffers injuries in an accident involving alcohol and motorcycles, it’s the motorcyclist being hit by a drunk driver. But drunk motorcyclists can inflict injuries, as seen in the above accident. An NHTSA report from 2010 shows that motorcycle riders who have BAC levels...
