With the number of increased cyclists spending greater time on roads which are also shared by other vehicles such as cars and buses; unfortunately, accidents do often take place.
Incidents whilst cycling can be caused by many different situations, a few of these include potholes, road defects, coaches and buses, negligence of other road users and equipment failure such as a faulty helmet or bike.
In the year 2010 alone, over 2 million potholes were identified in the UK through the Department of Transport’s Pothole Review. Many potholes were not a result of bad weather alone but were also due to street works and inadequate procedures for inspection.
