In large part bicyclists are treated like motor vehicles but there are certainly special rules that apply to bicyclists. For instance if you’re under 16 you’re required to wear a helmet. If you’re riding at night, you need to have a light. If you are riding on the sidewalk, you need to yield to pedestrians. If you’re riding your bike slower than traffic, you need to stay to the right. Obviously if you’re going to turn left then you would want to get in the left lane. But yeah, there are some peculiar laws that apply to bicyclists just by nature of the fact that bikes are separate and different types of transportation as compared to motor vehicles.
Are there any Special Laws that apply to bicyclists in Florida?
