Frequently Asked Questions

Are Bikes Considered Legal Vehicles?

"I was hit while riding on an Atlanta road. The driver said I was going too slow for traffic, but aren't bicycles considered legal vehicles and allowed to ride in the streets with other vehicles?"

Yes. Bicycles are considered a legal form of transportation and are allowed to operate in the streets of Atlanta. Although bicyclists should ride in bike lanes, when there are such lanes, but sometimes roads in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia are missing these lanes.

When this happens, it forces bicyclists to ride in the street with larger and heavier vehicles. Because of the smaller size of bicycles and the fact that they lack a motor, cyclists will be slower than the cars making it dangerous to join traffic. Bicyclists should know that the risks are more severe, but when they ride they hope that motorists also realize the danger they put cyclists in.

When drivers do not look out for bicyclists, cut them off, drive too close to them, don’t yield to them, and cause a cyclist to be injured in an Atlanta cycling accident, that driver should be held responsible.

If you were injured due to no fault of your own, you should talk with an experienced Atlanta bicycle accident attorney at Kalka & Baer LLC.
