Duty of Care Toward Bicyclists

Cyclists are owed a “duty of care” from drivers no matter where they meet. This legal responsibility stems from the fact that cyclists travel with less protection alongside heavier and faster cars, trucks, and SUVs. Motorists are legally obligated to monitor the roads ahead, and all mirrors and blind spots, for any rider who may be nearby. Drivers must hit the brakes to avoid any chance of a collision.

Drivers must also stop once a collision has occurred to get medical attention for a cyclist or pedestrian as fast as possible. Remaining on the scene, turning on hazard lights, and blocking off traffic also reduce the chances of the victim being struck by approaching motorists who may not be able to see an injured cyclist down in the street.
