Traffic and Bicycle Laws
Responsible behavior on the road prevents accidents, and this applies to both drivers of automobiles and those riding a bicycle. If you ride a bike, or if you or a loved one has been injured in a bike accident, you should understand the traffic and bicycle laws in the state of New York. All bicyclists should wear a helmet, as it goes a long way to protect you from sustaining a devastating head injury, should you be hit by a car or other vehicle. Failing to wear a helmet will weaken your case if you’re injured. Always ride with traffic, not against it, and do not weave in and out of lanes. Use your bell to sound your presence to drivers. The law firm of Shayne, Dachs, Sauer & Dachs, LLP of Long Island has knowledge of New York traffic laws and can help you win your bicycle injury case.
