Speeding on your bike is illegal in Washington State and across the country. And yet speeding is still the leading cause of bike accidents in which the cyclists is at fault.

In several ways, a speeding cyclist can be even more dangerous than a speeding car. Since bikes only have two wheels, not four, they are more difficult to control at high speeds. Bicycles, being significantly smaller than cars, are harder for others on the road to see. Thirdly, others on the road, especially pedestrians, may not be aware of a speeding bike before they step into the road.

Ten ways speeding bikes cause Washington bike accidents and injuries:

  1. A speeding bike runs into a pedestrian.
  2. A speeding bike is unable to stop at a red light.
  3. A speeding bike makes an unsafe lane change.
  4. A speeding bike loses control after striking gravel.
  5. A speeding bike loses control on a turn.
  6. A speeding bike loses control while trying to stop suddenly.
  7. A speeding bike collides with the back of a vehicle that suddenly stops.
  8. A speeding bike slams into the open door of a parked car.
  9. A speeding bike collides with another cyclist.
  10. A speeding bike crashes in poor weather conditions.
