Interaction with Other Road Users

Interacting with Bicycles

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 and debris."

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.
