bicyclist

A bicyclist rides legally in traffic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When crashes occur, there can be serious problems for cyclists if the police, courts, and juries do not understand bicyclists' rights and responsibilities under the law. If few members of juries ride bikes themselves, they may tend to examine the evidence from the viewpoint of the automobile driver.
