Bicycle & pedestrian injuries
When the vulnerable are injured by vehicles in Rochester, Strafford & Rockingham County, NH
People on foot or riding bikes are at a great disadvantage in motor traffic. Drivers always have the same excuses for running people down:
- “I never saw them.”
- “It wasn’t an official crosswalk.”
- “The kids darted into traffic.”
- “Bicycles have no place on city streets.”
Fortunately, these excuses don’t stand up in court. Motorists should never run pedestrians down, even if they are crossing at the wrong spot. And cyclists have as much right on most streets as other vehicles.
