“Bicycles riders (cyclists) on public streets have the same rights and responsibilities as automobile drivers and are subject to the same rules and regulations as any other vehicle on the road.” This quote is lifted from the California Department of Motor Vehicles. More than 100 cyclists are killed every year in California, with hundreds of thousands more injured, and many of these bicycle accidents could be avoided. Obeying traffic signals and following common safety practices can significantly reduce any cyclist’s risk of injury.
See the California DMV website for bicycling rules of the road and safety tips.
