Law in a Minute – Bicycle Accidents

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Many motorists fail to realize their responsibilities when sharing the roadway with bicyclists. Their lack of understanding or unwillingness to follow the rules of the road can put bicyclists in a very dangerous situation. A majority of the reported accidents between bicycles and motor vehicles are caused by one of three mistakes and are avoidable.

Failing to Yield:

When leaving a driveway or parking lot, drivers are required by law to yield to oncoming traffic. This includes bicyclists. Many motorists will watch for other motor vehicles before entering the roadway, but fail to yield to the bicyclists on that same roadway.

Right Turns:

Under Florida law, drivers of motor vehicles are required to use their signals before turning. Crashes happen when motorists fail to signal before making a right hand turn or make sudden right turns across the bicyclists lane.

Failure to Maintain a Safe Distance:

Motorists are required by Florida law to keep a distance of three feet between their vehicle and bicyclists, when passing.
