Why Are There So Many Bicycle Accidents at Octavia and Market?

Otherwise known as The Intersection from Biking Hell, too many bike accidents at Market Street and Octavia Blvd have given this dangerous San Francisco intersection its name. I’ve written about this intersection before and now this intersection has reached its third year as the top dangerous intersection for bicycle wrecks in San Francisco. Since the boulevard opened in 2005, there have been 56 crashes with injuries at Octavia and Market. Four of the bicycle accidents on Octavia have been fatal accidents, according to the California Highway Patrol and news reports. Octavia Blvd: The City had good intentions. The area…

Wild Turkeys Cause Serious Bicycle Accident

I have heard that too much Wild Turkey is a dangerous thing, but it’s not every day that wild turkeys make the news for creating a roadway hazard. Unfortunately on Saturday, October 20, 2012 a 51-year-old bicyclist from Benicia had an almost deadly turkey encounter. This bicyclist was injured when a brood of wild turkeys ran into his path. I do not mean to make light of this gentleman’s injuries and I wish him the very speediest and most complete recovery. The bicyclist suffered serious injuries–broken jaw, broken ribs and head trauma (although he was wearing a bike helmet). The…

San Francisco Bicycle Accident Attorney Video

Michael J. Swanson interviews top trial lawyer, Claude Wyle, on bicycle safety. Swanson:  We’ve be talking about bicycle safety. What would you do to encourage more bicycling?

Safety has to be the invitation to do more cycling, because if you think it’s dangerous then you might as well take a car. One of our goals is one less car. We are very strongly in favor of the environment and we like to reduce traffic…

Popularity of Bicycling and Walking Rising in U.S. by City and State

A recent study just came out regarding the statistics on bicycle riding and walking city by city and state by state in the U.S. Living in the usually sunny (not today) San Francisco Bay Area I cannot imagine what it’s like to bike or walk to work in Alaska–the state ranked with the highest number of bicycle and pedestrian commuters–as that seems cold. But maybe driving in snowy conditions is just too dangerous in Alaska so they make everything very close. I remember one town in Alaska had all of the apartments and the stores and the other businesses all…

Early Dawn Bicycle Accident South of Market at 5th St & Harrison St

One might think that heading out early in the morning is the safer way to travel the busy city streets of San Francisco by bicycle–with less cars on the road–but unfortunately early this morning a 26-year-old bicyclist was hit by a truck. According to the police the cyclist did not have a light on his bicycle, despite the darkness of the early dawn morning, as he rode south on 5th Street getting hit at 6:28 a.m. by a pickup truck that was turning left at Harrison Street. Thankfully, the bicyclist survived getting hit by the truck, and suffered non-life-threatening…
