Rated as a state with one of the most bike-friendly cities in the U.S., Pennsylvania sees its share of bike accident injuries. Additionally, more people bike as their mode of transportation per capita than in any other State in the United States (2020 Census). A survey estimated there are more bike commuters in Philadelphia than in Chicago (1.6%) and more than in New York (1%).
Bike accidents tend to be more severe since there is limited protection between a bicycle and the road or, even worse, a vehicle. In Pennsylvania, statistics show that cyclist accidents are only increasing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that in 2021, 24 bicyclists died in bike accidents (9% increase year-over-year), and motorists’ deaths fell by 7%.
