Motor Vehicles Are Required to Share the Road

Cyclists are required to follow certain laws when riding on the street, such as riding with traffic and riding on the right-hand side of the road, unless they feel it is not safe to do so or when making necessary traffic maneuvers. Motor vehicles are also required to follow certain rules in order to protect cyclists on the road. Just like cyclists, drivers must share the road, follow traffic laws and be courteous.

Motor vehicles are also required to follow other rules since their size and speed have the potential to cause great injury to cyclists. In Colorado, motor vehicles are required to leave at least a three-foot span of space between the widest part of their vehicle and the widest part of the bicyclist when passing. Additionally, vehicles are permitted to cross a double yellow line if oncoming traffic is clear.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

The following scenarios commonly result in bicycle accidents:

  • A motor vehicle hits the bike rider from behind or the side
  • A driver turns left and hits the bike rider
  • The bike rider is brushed by a car or blown off the road
  • The bike rider is forced off the road by a passing motor vehicle
  • A negligent driver ignores a traffic sign or signal and strikes the bike rider
  • Glass beads from road striping operations on the road make the road slippery and dangerous

We have dealt with several cases involving bike accidents caused by tiny glass beads commonly used in road striping. Our Boulder bicycle accident attorneys feel that these glass beads pose a significant risk to bicycle riders, and we want you to have the information you need. If you are injured in a bike accident, our Boulder bicycle accident lawyers are ready to investigate and evaluate your case. We serve clients throughout the state of Colorado.
