Florida recognizes cyclists as having the same rights as any other road user. They are required to use dedicated bicycle lanes when these are available. Otherwise, they must travel as far to the right side of the road as possible. The law requires cyclists to be treated with the same courtesy as motorists, motorcyclists, or any other road users. In fact, as long as the bicycle is not motorizaed, bicyclists are considered often the same class of individuals as a pedestrian where motor vehicles must extend the highest degree of caution. Unfortunately, however, motorists don’t always comply with this requirement. Cyclists are often injured because of negligence on the part of motorists. In these cases, cyclists can claim damages from the guilty parties.
