What are the rules of the road for bicycles?
Original post made by Nancy, Midtown, on Mar 26, 2009
Today, I saw a bicylclist coming at high speed through a crosswalk, while a car was making a left hand turn across that same crosswalk. Both the car and bicycle were going in the same direction, with a green light. I noticed that the bicylcist yelled some harsh words at the car driver. This surprised me, because I thought the car driver had the right of way, and he could not have anticipated that the bicylcist would come racing through like that. I happen to notice that same bicyclist blow through a red light, then a stop sign down the road.
What are the rules for bicylcists? Are they pedestrians or moving vehicles, or both?
