Riding alongside heavier and faster vehicles could pose as a danger for cyclists who neglect to follow road rules. Aside from familiarizing yourself with road safety regulations, knowing your rights as a cyclist is also important. Generally, cyclists have similar rights and responsibilities as with motor vehicle drivers.

As any other vehicle owner, you can freely ride on the same streets and highways without discrimination. While on the road, you have the right to expect others to exercise caution and drive safely. Sidewalks, streets, and highways must also be reasonably safe for you and other drivers.

If you have the same speed as other motor vehicles, you have the freedom to ride wherever you want. The only thing you must keep in mind is to always stay in the right lane.

In case you get involved in an accident, you have the right to get immediate medical care as any other victim of the traffic.

In addition, traffic enforcement officers must treat you fairly while your insurance company must cover your damages, regardless if you’re driving a bike or a truck.
