BICYCLE CRASHES-OHIO
Statistics show fewer Ohio bicycle deaths, injuries; advocates still call for more protections

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 6:34 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Riding a bicycle on Ohio roads seems to be getting safer.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety statistics show that fewer bicyclists were injured and killed riding in the state last year compared with the previous year.

The agency says more than 1,500 bicyclists were injured statewide last year, down from about 1,900 in 2012. Last year, 19 riders were killed in crashes in Ohio, compared with 18 in 2012.

Bike advocates tell The Columbus Dispatch that they're gaining strength in numbers. With more bicycles on the road, motorists may become more comfortable riding alongside them.

But bicyclists still want more protections — including a state rule requiring cars to give bicyclists a 3-foot cushion when they pass, and stiffer penalties for hit-skip drivers.
