Bicyclists have very little protection if they are struck by a car, truck or other motor vehicle
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 21, 2015
The Copenhagenize Design Company Index of the Most Bike-Friendly Cities recently revealed Vancouver, BC to be the 46th most bike-friendly city out of a total of 122 places around the globe, reports News 1130 at http://goo.gl/qPzxwV. Many experts and road safety enthusiasts believe that Vancouver is not doing well and needs to catch up with the world in making its roads safer for bikers. The article also suggests that efforts, such as improving bicycle-friendly infrastructure and educating people, can make roads safer for bikers.
Personal injury lawyers at Jiwa Law Corp commented on the news article, stating that Vancouver’s position in the European ranking says a lot about the safety of bikers on the city’s roads.
