Bicyclists and Automobiles must share
the road. A collision with a bicyclist will most likely
result in serious injuries. Drivers must give bicyclists
plenty of room, so avoid getting too close and cutting them
off. According to the Texas Department of Transportation
- "Be on the lookout for cyclists on the highway, especially
at intersections. If you’re passing a bicyclist, move
to another lane if possible and give them plenty of room.
Watch for riders who may need to maneuver around potholes
Bicycle riders must obey the same
traffic laws automobile drivers are subject to. This includes
obeying stop signs, traffic lights etc.
When it comes to traffic laws, automobile
drivers must treat bicyclists the same as other vehicles.
