Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents

UNC Asheville, Pack Square, and our Blue Ridge Parkway make our mountain area a prime spot for cyclists, walkers, and joggers. Because of the number of bicycles and people taking advantage of bike paths and walking trails throughout the Asheville and Western North Carolina areas, bicycle accidents, injuries to pedestrians, accidents involving children, and crosswalk accidents occur with alarming frequency. Distracted and inattentive drivers of cars, SUVs, vans, and trucks are the number one cause for bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Even if bicyclists and pedestrians follow the rules, they are often invisible to negligent drivers who are not looking for them.

Forms of driver negligence include:

  • Failure to see pedestrians in a crosswalk when they are turning
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Going too fast, can’t stop or slow down
  • Failing to use their headlights at dawn or dusk
  • Opening car doors into the path of a bike without looking
