In California, a bike lane is marked by a solid white line. Motorists are not allowed to drive in or obstruct bicycle lanes. Cars can cross a bicycle lane within 200 feet of a corner when turning as long as there is no bike traffic in the lane. When passing a bicycle, cars are required to provide 3 to 4 feet of clearance. Certain California roadways are marked as shared roadways, which remind drivers that bicycles are entitled to use a portion of the roadway when there is no bike lane.
If you have been injured in a bike lane or shared roadway, our lawyers will take the time to understand the nature of your injuries and build a strong case on your behalf. By preparing meticulously for the possibility of trial, we let the insurance companies know that we mean business. As a result, we are often able to leverage favorable settlement agreements on behalf of our clients without having to go to trial.
