I was hit by a motor vehicle while riding my bicycle or walking, what should I do?
In the United States alone, almost half of the motor vehicle accidents involve cyclists. Cyclists are much more likely to be killed in accidents with motor vehicles than injured statistics state. To reduce your risk as a cyclist, always wear a helmet and obey traffic laws explicitly. Motorist have a poor view of cyclists as being unpredictable and unaware of traffic laws and so tend to behave more recklessly when driving around bicyclists.
If you are struck by a motor vehicle while bicycling, contact emergency personnel immediately. If you are not seriously injured, make every attempt to obtain the personal, vehicle and insurance information for the driver of the motor vehicle. If you are the victim of a hit and run, try to remember the license plate or at least make and model of the vehicle that hit you, and get medical attention immediately.

Major Rhode Island Roadways:
Interstate 95: I-95: I-95 is the main north-south Interstate Highway on America’s east coast. In Rhode Island, I-95 travels from the Connecticut border near Westerly through Warwick and Providence and then on to the Massachusetts border in Pawtucket. Routes I-195 and I-295 (discussed below) are spurs of I-95.
Interstate 195: I-195: Travelling a combined 40.1 miles in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, I-195 leaves its junction with I-95 in Providence then heads east to a junction with I-495 and Route 25 on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod. The section of I-195 in downtown Providence is being replaced. The new route will lie just south of the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier.
Interstate 295: I-295: At a length of just 26.58 miles in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I-295 is short but vital. From its southern terminus in Warwick, it forms an essential western beltway around Providence before ending to the north in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Plans are underway to supplement I-295 with an eastern beltway around Providence.
