Bicycles provide little to no level of protection that cars, trucks, or other automobiles include. This means that injuries in bicycle accidents can be much more severe, with the most common being:
- Neck/spinal cord injuries
- Intra-abdominal injury
- Leg and knee injuries
- Nerve damage
- Dislocated joints
- Road rash
- Dental/jaw injuries
- Temporary/permanent muscle damage
- Bone fractures
Unlike some states, California has numerous laws requiring bicyclists to meet certain safety standards to use the state’s public roads. For example, California has a safety equipment requirement that specifically applies to minor bicyclists regarding the use of helmets, as well as the following equipment requirements:
- White/yellow reflectors visible from 300 feet
- White safety lamps visible from 300 feet
- White/yellow reflectors on each pedal, foot, or ankle, visible from the rear and front of the bicycle and 200 feet
- Red rear reflectors visible from 500 feet when in headlamps of an automobile
