Bicyclist Collides With Nissan LEAF – Video
“Bicycle runs a red light at S 9th Street and Snyder Avenue in Philadelphia PA, then gets hit by a Nissan LEAF.”
States the video description.
These bicycle/car incidents are all too common, which makes a vehicle’s pedestrian safety score all the more important.
The LEAF scores 65% in pedestrian safety, which is mid-pack among plug-in vehicles.
Would a greater/different audible sound warning have made any difference? We think not in this case, but the discussion of what is necessary and what is not (if at all) is still a hot topic in many countries around the world.
Most importantly, injuries must have been relatively minor:
“The bicyclist walked away from Philadelphia EMS personnel.”
And the “driver was cleared of any wrong doing.”
