Stuart Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Representation for Injured Bikers

In Florida, the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists have the same rights to the roadways and must obey the same traffic laws as the operators of other vehicles. These laws include stopping for stop signs and red lights, riding with the flow of traffic, using lights at night, and yielding the right-of-way when entering a roadway.

It is up to bicyclists and motorists to treat each other with care and respect. Strict adherence to the law is the foundation for this respect. Contact our experienced Stuart bicycle accident lawyer if you have questions or have been involved in an accident, we can help.

Traffic Law Highlights

State bicycle regulations (see Section 316.2065, F.S.) include:

  • A bicyclist must obey all traffic controls and signals.
  • A bicyclist must use a fixed, regular seat for riding.
  • No bicycle may be used to carry more persons at one time than the number for which it is designed or equipped.
  • At least one hand must be kept on the handlebars while riding.
  • Parents and guardians must not knowingly allow a child or minor ward to violate any provisions of this section.
  • Every bicycle must be equipped with a brake or brakes that allow the rider to stop within 25 feet from a speed of 10 miles per hour on dry, level, clean pavement.
