Bicyclists in Florida have many rules and laws that must be followed.
In fact, a bicyclist has to obey many of the same laws that motor vehicle operators do. Here are just a few:
- A bicycle rider has to stop at traffic signs and signals and observe traffic laws.
- The bicycle must also have lights and reflectors for night riding.
- A bicyclist or passenger who is under 16 years of age must wear a helmet.
- A bicyclist must yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.
Did you know that you can recover in an automobile-bicycle accident even if you were not hit by the vehicle while you were riding your bike?
Yes, if you were forced to take evasive actions that caused your bicycle injuries as a result of a negligent driver.
