Although there are laws and regulations in the state of California to help protect bicycle riders from injuries, collisions still occur. Most bicycle accident victims suffer severe injuries and are left with expensive medical bills and costly recoveries after these crashes.

A cyclist can move away from the right side of the road in the following situations:
