They may be startled and lose control. Use extra caution when passing bicycles. Move entirely into the left lane; on a two-lane road, do not pass a bicycle if oncoming traffic is near. Bicyclists might swerve to avoid road hazards. Common road hazards for bicyclists are potholes, debris, drainage grates, railroad tracks and narrow bridges. Be careful when opening your vehicle door. Road widths often force bicyclists to ride close to parked vehicles where they may be injured by an opening door. When in doubt, yield to bicycles. Always wear a helmet. Ride on the right. Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn, or avoiding hazards. Never ride against traffic. Always ride with the flow of traffic. Obey traffic signs and signals. Use hand signals to advise motorists you plan to turn, change lanes or stop. Make eye contact with motorists. Never assume a motorist sees you or that you have the right- of-way. Expect the unexpected such as: parked vehicles pulling into traffic; vehicle doors opening into your path; and debris on the road. At night use a headlight, taillight and reflectors. Under Alabama law, bicycles have a right to use Alabama's roads. Under Alabama law, bicyclists must follow the same rules of the road as motorists. Every person operating a bicycle upon a roadway shall ride as near to the right side of the roadway as practicable, exercising due care when passing a standing vehicle or one proceeding in the same direction. Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway shall not ride more than two abreast except on paths or parts of roadways set aside for the exclusive use of bicycles. Wherever a usable path for bicycles has been provided adjacent to a roadway, bicycle riders shall use such path and shall not use the roadway. Under Alabama law, all operators and passengers who are under 16 years of age are to wear approved protective bicycle helmets, and all bicycle passengers who weigh less than 40 pounds or are less than 40 inches in height to be seated in separate restraining seats.(Alabama bicycle laws listing is for refrence purposes only.
