Bicyclists Injure a Pedestrian

Re: the bicycle insurance issue: years ago when I used to commute downtown daily on my bike, I was able to insure my bike on my auto policy. The cost was minuscule. BUT—because I was no longer using my car to commute most days, I was able to knock around 100 bucks off my annual insurance premium. The other advantage was that I had complete liability and property damage coverage on my bike, if I were to cause an accident. People who own cars but regularly commute by bike should talk to their issuance agents about this little-known money saving plan.

Will I'd like to tell you the whole story but that was all I heard I did hear the victim was inside the lobby of the Upham hotel which led me to wonder if he was hit in the lobby by the bicyclists or did it happen on the street? That was all I heard.

I wish there was more to this story like how did two bicyclists hit the same person. We’re the the bikes on the sidewalk or was this in the street? Was it on purpose? Just asking not speculating..

I have no idea about Insurance today as I was walking up Milpas street there was a bicyclist directly behind me riding my bumper and I almost hit the brakes.

How are liability issues handled when bike riders hit pedestrians? Is there any insurance coverage available?

If the bicycle Rider or Riders have homeowners or renters insurance then that should extend liability to them while they're riding their bike and if they crash into a pedestrian. Hopefully they have some kind of insurance or they are under age and their parents have homeowners insurance

Bicyclists believe they own the world and show zero respect for pedestrians. They will , shamelessly, insult you if you don't jump out of their way when they decide to speed through wherever they are. I'm surprised there are not more such "incidents" .

Four people downvoted that comment? EdHate is a wasteland and its "community moderation" is worse than useless.

Sure, because no one operating any other kind of vehicle has ever hit a pedestrian. Maybe people just insult you because you're so deserving of it.

Blanket statements about ANY group of people as a whole are in poor taste
