Each year, more than 500,000 people in the US are treated in emergency departments, and more than 700 people die as a result of bicycle-related injuries.

Children are at particularly high risk for bicycle-related injuries. In 2001, children 15 years and younger accounted for 59% of all bicycle-related injuries seen in US emergency departments.

Learn more about the problem of bicycle related injuries and what you can do to prevent them at the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.*
