“A bicycle lane is a lane marked with a strip and symbols (of a figure on a bike) for the preferential use of bicycles on a roadway. Motorists may enter or cross a bicycle lane to turn into or off a roadway at intersections and driveways.” – Florida Bicycle Association

 

RULES THAT APPLY WHEN NO BIKE LANE IS MARKED

A white line at the edge of the road is usually marked when a bike lane is not present. If the road has curbs, the gutter is not considered roadway. If the road has flush shoulders and if there are paved shoulders beyond the edge line, that area is not considered a bike lane.

The rules can be complex, even for seasoned bikers. Attorney Steven Wingo has in-depth understanding of laws for cyclists as well as the ways the laws apply to each specific type of bike accident.

Cyclists have the right of way, and that is perhaps the most important rule of the road that comes into play in bike accident cases. If you were injured in a bike accident in a bike lane, turn to the law firm that can sort through the complexities to protect your rights.
