California Bicycle Law

Under California law, a bicycle is not considered a vehicle in the matter of traffic rules and regulations, but bicycle operation is still governed by many of the same traffic laws. Bicycle riders are considered to have the same rights as drivers to use of the streets, but the specifics regarding bicycle rights and responsibilities can be confusing. Bicycle riders in California should be aware that there is an absolute immunity held by the government in regard to injuries caused by conditions of paved bikeways and trails.
