- Accidents where a motorist was drunk or under the influence of other drugs
- Accidents where a motorist failed to yield or obey other traffic laws
- Accidents where a motorist was distracted, either by a cell phone or something else
- Accidents where a driver or passenger in a parked car didn’t properly check for cyclists before opening their car door, leading to a “dooring” incident, which can cause serious injuries
- Accidents where a motorist exercised reckless behavior, such as excessive speeding or road rage
