Understanding Georgia’s Bicycle Crash Data

Understanding bicycle crash data in Georgia helps cyclists understand how frequent bicycle accidents occur and that they may not be immune to Georgia bicycle crashes happening to them. This better equips riders to be more aware of their surroundings and to take every safety precaution necessary while riding so that they do not fall victim to becoming another statistic.

The Georgia Department of Community Health indicates in their OASIS crash web query that 2009 bicycle crashes in Georgia included:

  • 20 fatal accidents
  • 40 serious injuries
  • 549 mild injuries
  • 800 reported bicycle accidents statewide

The crash data indicates that most bicycle crashes in Georgia occur in urban areas where speeds are typically no greater than 35 to 45 miles per hour. The danger here is that there are generally more driveways and intersections that put cyclists at greater risks for injuries.

Although bicycle accidents in Georgia make up about one quarter percent of overall traffic-related accidents, they represent more than five times that percentage in overall traffic deaths. The concern here is that the Atlanta Metropolitan Statistical Area has one of the lowest rates of cyclists in the nation; however, Georgia ranks within the top ten states to have the most bicycle fatalities.
