Right-Turn Bicycle Accidents
Many bicycle accidents occur when the cyclist, driver, or both, are attempting to make a right-hand turn. These accidents are very common, in part because cars often cross into the bicycle lane to turn right at lights. Drivers may enter the bicycle lane early – which is illegal and dangerous – and may not check their mirrors or notice bicyclists.
