Biking Rules

According to Georgia law, cyclists are expected to obey the rules of the road other motor vehicles follow. While cyclists who are over the age of 12 are not allowed to ride on the sidewalk, motorists are required to leave at least three feet of space when passing.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Understanding the common causes of bicycle accidents can help cyclists and motorists alike prevent potential collisions and injuries. Some of the most frequent causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Driver negligence, such as failing to yield to cyclists or not checking blind spots
  • Dooring accidents, where a driver or passenger opens a car door in the path of an oncoming cyclist
  • Distracted driving, such as texting or using a phone while behind the wheel
  • Failure to follow traffic laws, including running red lights or stop signs
  • Poor road conditions, such as potholes or debris that can cause a cyclist to lose control
  • Unsafe passing or overtaking of cyclists by motorists

By being aware of these common causes, both cyclists and drivers can take proactive steps to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of everyone on the road.
