Riding Bikes is a Popular Activity in Cities Like LA
In Los Angeles, California, a very popular recreational sporting activity is cycling on city streets and along our beautiful beach city boardwalks. But first you have to get to the beach to enjoy it. Most of the streets in Los Angeles don’t have bike lanes. This means you end up sharing streets with passenger cars, commercial trucks and other motorized vehicles. Some of the most typical bike and cycling injury accidents involve inattentive drivers, who are reckless or even a negligently entrusted automobile. They often drive at high speed, are drunk or stoned, or are otherwise careless by talking on their cell phones.
Sharing the Road With Motor Vehicles: FAQ’s?
We get many frequently asked questions (“FAQ”) from clients. One FAQ has to do with “lane sharing.” Although some automobile operators might think that bike riders shouldn’t be sharing roadways with cars, this is not the law. Cyclists and other bike riders have the same rights under the law as car or motor vehicle drivers. The exception is that bikes are not allowed on California freeways.
