Bicycles on California’s Roadways
Drivers and bicyclists share the responsibility for keeping roads safe. Serious injuries or death to bicyclists can occur from something that might seem very minor to a driver. Checking for a bicyclist before beginning a turn, changing lanes or even opening a car door are just a few ways that drivers can cause injuries to bicyclists.
