Bicyclists Can be Cited For Red Light, Stop Signs Tickets and More

Bicyclists Can be Cited For Red Light, Stop Signs Tickets and More-blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  

 

By law ( California Vehicle Code section  21200) , “Every person riding a bicycle upon a highway has all the rights and is subject to all the provisions applicable to the driver of a vehicle by this division, except those provisions which by their very nature can have no application.” Essentially this means that cyclists are to act and be treated as drivers of cars. However many inexperienced or non professional bicyclists are not aware that the vehicle code applies to them while they are on a non-motor driven device, moved exclusively by human power. Unfortunately, this is no excuse, and while it may seem unfair, bicyclists (of any level of experience) are expected to know the rules of the road and abide by them.

It is true a driver of a bicyclist can be cited for a red light, a stop sign violation, for wearing ear plugs in both ears while riding, etc. What more, is that many of the  violations committed while on a bicycle will carry a point (or more) and can affect your driver’ s license and insurance rates. Luckily a ticket issued to a bicyclist can be fought or contested in the same way as a ticket received while driving a car.
