Georgia Bike Accident Laws

"I almost hit a bicycle that was in my lane of traffic, and I don't think the cyclist should have been riding there. What are the laws concerning bicycles in Atlanta traffic?"

Every vehicle on the road in Atlanta is supposed to follow the same traffic laws and have the same rights as others. However, not everyone believes that bicycles are considered legal vehicles. Contrary to some beliefs, bicycles are legal vehicles in Georgia, and cyclists are vehicle operators. A motor vehicle and a bicycle have equal rights to the road and lanes, unless rules are posted otherwise. If you were injured or if someone you love was killed in a bicycle accident in Georgia, the other driver may be at fault.
