The State Department of Health Department completed a survey that shows that nine riders each day are admitted to public hospitals, victims of traffic accidents.

Often cyclists are hit by cars or by bus, which makes the common occurrence of multiple trauma, says Jorge dos Santos Silva, head of the Orthopedic Trauma Group, Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology HCFMUSP, unit linked to the Ministry of Health

According to the doctor, the most common injuries are head injuries and spinal and pelvic fractures (pelvis) of the forearm bones, the femur and tibia.

In 2011 3400 people were hospitalized, generating an expense of $ 3.25 million to the National Health System (SUS) to treat these patients.

According recomendações da Companhia de Engenharia de Tráfego (CET) as the bicycle is weaker the vehicle, the speed increase entails an increased risk thus is not a good practice in transit.

Still according to the TEC, a helmet is recommended for safety equipment, and the cyclist is essential that it be of good quality. Moreover, it is mandatory to use reflective pedals, side, front and rear of the bike. And to improve the visibility of cyclists by other drivers, we recommend the use of reflective light-colored clothes and accessories.
