A bicycle messenger is struck by a driver looking the other direction. A construction worker is below a crane when its load slips from its ropes. A slip-and-fall in a grocery store causes a shopper to hit their head on a counter. These are just some of the ways a person could receive a brain injury.
Bicycle lanes are undoubtedly safer for cyclists than using the open road or sidewalks. But, Los Angeles bike lanes have plenty of room for improvement.
Los Angeles is full of dangers for people just moving around the city and its surroundings. This is especially true for bicyclists and pedestrians, who are less protected in a city built for cars and other vehicles. Another group at higher risk is people for whom work is outside.
