Auto-bicycle accident leads to injuries and prison

Cincinnati group promotes bike safety with free lights

Although Cincinnati bicyclists and motorists have equal rights on the road, it might not always feel like it for those who regularly bike. Oftentimes, blame is put on the bike rider for being in the middle of the road or for "coming out of nowhere." It's not uncommon to hear motorists say "I just didn't see them." Although drivers may try to deflect blame, when their negligent behavior leads to serious injuries for a bicyclist, they may be held accountable.
