April 17, 2011 – According to WSMV Nashville, many Tennessee bicyclists believe the state of Tennessee does not sufficiently protect bicyclists that have been hit by motor vehicles. One cyclist even said that drivers who crash into bicyclists in Tennessee are treated no differently than if they were to run into animals on the side of the road.¬† Much of the outrage stems from a February 2011 accident in Middle Tennessee when a bicyclist almost died after being hit by a dump truck.¬† The truck driver was ultimately cleared of all charges, including a $50 fine for driving within 3 feet of a cyclist, after a Tennessee Department of Safety investigation. Recently, the Tennessee Transportation Committee responded to calls from concerned cyclists by passing a bill that would impose a $250 fine against a driver for the unsafe passing of a pedestrian or cyclist.¬† Tennessee cyclists continue to seek change and feel it is time for their interests to be better protected.
If a negligent driver causes a car accident that injures other drivers or passengers, the victims may recover damages for injuries or losses under Tennessee law.¬† If a negligent driver crashes into a bicyclist, that cyclist can suffer many of the same types of injuries as an injured driver or passenger.
