What Are the Laws in California Regarding Bicycles?

Section 21200 of the California Vehicle Code says that bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as the drivers of any motor vehicle on the roads. This means that if you are a California bicyclist, you are subject to the same laws as other drivers including the laws on driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, obeying traffic signals and giving pedestrians the right-of-way.

There are a few rules that motor vehicles must follow when they interact with a bicyclist on a California road. They include, but may not be limited to:

  • Motor vehicles in California must give bicyclists 3 free of space when they are passing or driving beside a bicycle.
  • No one can obstruct or block a designated bicycle path by stopping in the bike path or parking their car or bicycle in it.

A law that often confuses motor vehicle drivers is that bicyclists in California have the right to ‘take the lane,” even if they are moving slower than traffic in the following circumstances:

  • When passing
  • When avoiding road hazards
  • When a lane is too narrow to share
  • When approaching a place where a right turn is authorized

Additionally, all California bicyclists should be aware of the ‘rules of the road.’ In California, the law requires all bicyclist to ride with the flow of traffic unless:

  • They are passing
  • They are making a legal left turn
  • Riding on a one-way street
  • Riding on a narrow road or when the right side of the road is closed due to construction.

On any road or highway in Yucca Valley and throughout California that has a designated bike lane, if you are riding slower than the flow of motor vehicle traffic you must use the designated bike lane unless you are passing, avoiding hazards, making a legal left turn, or approaching a location where there is an authorized right turn.

Who is Liable for a California Bicycle Accident?

If a driver of a motor vehicle was reckless or negligent and caused your bicycle accident, you can seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Under California negligence laws, a negligent driver is liable for injuries caused by an accident the driver caused.

If you were injured in a California bicycle accident as a result of another driver’s reckless, carelessness and/or negligence, the law in California lets you sue the driver to recover monetary damages for your injuries.

In addition, there may be other parties who are liable for your California bicycle accident they include, but may not be limited to:

  • Bicycle repair shops. These businesses repair, modify or sometimes sell bicycles. However, they can and do make mistakes while performing repairs on a bicycle or it could be you were sold a defective bicycle. For example, you may be involved in a Yucca Valley bicycle accident if a repair shop didn’t repair your brakes properly.
  • Bicycle manufacturers. Like many other products sold in California, bicycles can have safety defects that heighten the risk of an accident. Bicycle manufacturers may be liable for your bicycle accident caused by design or manufacturing defects.
  • Property owners. There are several ways property owners could cause bicycle accidents. For example, property owners could fail to maintain their sidewalks. Cracks, potholes and other obstacles could cause a bicycle accident. In this case, it may be possible for a cyclist or their loved ones to file a premises liability lawsuit.
  • Municipalities. Municipalities can be responsible for bicycle accidents. For example, if there was a pothole or other problems with infrastructure. In some of these cases, you or your loved ones could recover compensation from the city in California your bicycle accident occurred in.
  • Other businesses. A business could be liable for your Yucca Valley bicycle accident if one of their employees hit you while on the job.
