In Massachusetts, cyclists are killed each year because of drivers who are not paying attention, lack respect or are otherwise negligent. The majority of the accidents occur in and around the Boston area. Although Massachusetts is among the score of states that requires bicycle riders (between the ages of 1 and 16) to wear helmets, the sheer number of vehicles that share roadways with bicyclists make car/bicycle crashes a fact of modern life. Like motorcycles, bicycles can be difficult for drivers to see, even if riders wear high-visibility clothing.
