Eight things to do if you’re in a bicycle accident

Bicycle commuting is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Not only is riding a bike good for your health, it is also good for the environment. According to Statista, the number of bicyclists has increased dramatically in recent years, from 51 million bike riders in 2012 to more than 66 million bike riders in 2017.

With more bicycle commuters, that also means more potential for bicycle accidents. Below are eight things to do if a car hits you while you are on a bicycle.

Your license will be permanently revoked after 4 OWI convictions

Everyone enjoys a cold beer or stiff cocktail now and then. It’s a great way to blow off steam after a long work week, reconnect with old friends and keep the cheers going at a Badger’s game. While there’s nothing wrong with having a drink, deciding to drive afterword will almost certainly land you in jail.

Wisconsin is cracking down on drunk driving this summer by modifying OWI punishments. Per a new law, if you are convicted of four or more drunk driving related offenses, you will lose your driver’s license permanently. If your license is lost and you are caught driving, you will face a heavy fine and be incarcerated for up to a full year.
