How Common Are Bicycle Accidents in Laughlin, Nevada?
Laughlin, Nevada gives bicycle enthusiasts easy access to the Colorado River Greenway Heritage Trail park. With over nine miles of trails for bicyclists and pedestrians, picnickers and fishers, and families seeking outdoor fun in the playgrounds and water spray parks nearby, the park is a safe-haven for those riding alone or in groups.
The trails provide bicyclists with easy access to safe riding, as long as everyone else using the trail is also using the paths safely. Sometimes, it is not about how safe you are being, as it is impossible to control the traveling behaviors of others.
The Centers for Disease Control lists that more than 465,000 people suffered from bicycle-related injuries last year.
