Bicycle Laws in California
There are many laws in the state of California designed to protect cyclists. State law defines cyclists as motorized vehicles, meaning that cyclists must obey all traffic rules and must act with care and responsibility.
Regardless of how careful a cyclist may be, however, one simple mistake from the driver of a nearby passenger vehicle can have devastating or even deadly consequences. Every year in the United States, more than 600 bicyclists are killed and more than 50,000 are injured. According to the CHP, accidents often occur because a driver was making an unsafe turn, opened a door as a bicyclist was passing, or didn't see the bicyclist coming.
Bicyclists can try to avoid accidents by the following practices:
- Riding with traffic
- Using the bike lane
- Using hand signals
- Wearing the proper equipment
