Colorado Cyclist and Bicycle Traffic Laws
New laws in Colorado have allowed more room for a bicyclist to ride on the road among other restrictions to make cycling safer and more enjoyable. A few of the new laws include:
- Lane position – This allows the cyclist to ride as far to the right or left on the road depending on what the situation dictates.
- More than one rider – As long as the cyclist isn’t impairing the driver’s ability they can either pass or ride next to each other.
- Anti-harassment – also known a buzzing or driving too close, honking or otherwise distracting the cyclist.
- Hit and Run Bike Accidents – Many confusing legal scenarios result from a hit and run. An attorney can maximize compensation for damages done when a vehicle strikes a cyclist. The victim of a hit and run accident needs an experienced professional to sort out the legal details.
