You Have Just as Much Right to Use Streets and Highways as Drivers Do
Many drivers either don’t know or intentionally ignore the California law that states bicyclists have the same rights to area roadways as others do. Riders also have the same responsibilities to abide by the rules of the road and respect the rights-of-way of other vehicles. It is true that some bicyclists increase the chances of a vehicle striking them by weaving in and out of traffic, talking on cell phones, listening to music while riding or disobeying traffic signals and stop signs. However, negligent drivers cause the majority of bicycle accidents, injuries and fatalities when they do the following:
- Fail to honor a cyclist’s right-of-way
- Drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Talk or text on phones while driving
- Crowd bicyclists off the road
- Blow through stop signs and red lights
- Change lanes without looking
- Drive over the speed limit
- Engage in road rage and intimidate riders with their vehicles
