A recent article highlighted a frightening trend – California bicycle accidents are on the rise and the town of Lodi is near the top for communities of its size for the number of bicycle-vehicle accidents.

If you have been in a Lodi bike accident, call an experienced California bike accident lawyer for crucial information and to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Statistics show that for children younger that 15, the Lodi bike accident rate is among the highest in the state. In 2009, Lodi ranked third out of California cities with a population of 50,000-100,000. Alameda ranked number one.

In order to reduce the severity of injuries occurring from bike accident, the Lodi Police Department is ramping up bike traffic enforcement, including issuing tickets for failure to wear a helmet. Other laws to be aware of include:

  • Bicyclists must obey traffic signals
  • Bicyclists should ride in the same direction as traffic, not against it
  • Bicycles must be walked in an intersection or crosswalk
  • Bikes should not be ridden on the sidewalk in a business district
