Occasionally, the very worst happens. In December 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland, a cyclist was struck from behind and killed by a motorist. The driver drove from the scene, even though the vehicle was heavily damaged with a windshield shattered and deformed by the cyclist's body.
This year has seen a texting while driving ban in Florida. Bicyclists know well the danger to them that distracted driving poses.
There is another type of distracted driving. It has to do with wearing a headset. It has never been easier to stream music. This means it has never been easier to listen to music while riding. Florida law regulates how we can legally listen to music while riding a bicycle. The same law applies to bicycle riders, motorcycle riders, and car and truck drivers.
