It is not unusual for bicycle riders to not realize that they have the same rights as other drivers. Unlike in decades past, as a bicycle rider, you are required to ride with the traffic, not against traffic. At our law practice, we have encountered many riders who have been struck and injured by other vehicles. And yet, the riders did not know that all of the same traffic laws that apply to motor vehicles also apply to bicycles. For instance, under the laws of Florida, a bicycle is a "vehicle." A bicyclist has all the same rights to the road as a motor vehicle such as a car, a truck, a bus or motorcycle. While riding on a sidewalk, bicyclists must give the right of way to pedestrians. If you break a traffic law, such as going through a red light or a stop sign, you can be ticketed just as a driver of an automobile would be.

We protect the rights of injured bicyclists in Plantation, FL.
