Bicyclists must endure significant risks in navigating the roads of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. The possibility for injury is literally around every corner. Whether cycling is a pastime or passion, dangers exist both within and outside of a designated bike lane. To say that they need to keep their guard up would be an understatement.
Add to that the September 2010 report from Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report that ranked Baltimore drivers 192nd out of the nation’s 200 largest cities. Simply stated, Baltimore motorists are ranked among the worst drivers in the country with the average driver involved in a motor vehicle accident every five years. Bicyclists are literally putting their lives on the line.
