LAWS FOR CYCLISTS IN FL

His sole area of practice is personal injury, and he is more than qualified to provide professional assistance your claim.

UNDERSTAND YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

The best way to avoid bicycle accidents is to know the laws pertaining to cyclists. Many people are unaware of their responsibilities as cyclists, and as a result face injuries that could have been avoided with proper precaution.

A cyclist is required to do the following:

  • Obey traffic signals
  • Carry no more people on the bicycle than it was designed to hold
  • Keep at least one hand on the handlebars
  • Yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Use a lamp and reflector when riding between sunset and sunrise
  • Signal within 100 feet before turning.

Are you obeying these laws? If not, you are placing yourself at a higher risk for accidents and injury liability. There are, of course, other laws that cyclists must obey. All of these will come into play in considering your accident claim.
