Californians are increasingly using bicycles to commute, for exercise or leisure. This means that more bicyclists are exposed to the risk of being involved in traffic collisions. All bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicles operators. When a crash happens between a bicycle and a vehicle, it is more likely that the cyclist will be injured.
