Fighting for Safer Roads for Bicyclists
Bicycle riding has made a resurgence in recent years as both a great way to stay in shape and take care of the environment. To protect cyclists, there are a number of laws regulating driver safety when sharing the road. If these rules are breached and you suffer an injury as a result, you need to discuss your case with a seasoned Reston and Northern Virginia bicycle accident lawyer.

Your Rights as a Cyclist
In Virginia, bicycles are allowed on most roads just as cars. A cyclist has far less protection from injury in an incident on the road than a driver. It is imperative for drivers to follow the proper safety standards to avoid causing catastrophic injury.
The following are a few examples of driver negligence:
- Drifting into bike lanes
- Attempting a left turn against an oncoming bicycle
- Crowding the cyclist.
- Ignoring a cyclist’s turn signals
- Opening a car door without checking for bicyclists
