Bicycle riding and moped riding are fun and fast-growing modes of travel. They are an easy and fun way to stay fit and healthy. This, among other reasons, is why many cities such as Miami and NYC have incorporated Citi Bikes for anyone to rent and ride. While they are a great implementation to help the community, unfortunately, there has been a rise in accident rate since Citi Bikes have come around.
From accidents such as drivers failing to yield to pedestrians and bicyclists to drivers opening their doors causing bicyclists to crash, to potholes in the road, Citi Bikes are causing more and more injuries every day. Many people could be at fault in any case. If the bicycle was poorly maintained, then the bike sharing company is liable. If the bicycle was manufactured poorly, then the manufacturer is liable. If potholes have caused an accident, the local government is at fault, and drivers who hit bicyclists are at fault when they cause an accident.
