More on Right Turns


Sondra Asked:  Who has the right of way in moving traffic when: 1) the cyclist is traveling straight ahead on the far right side (where the bike lane ended about 100 feet before the intersection) and is moving with traffic and 2) the motorist makes a right hand turn in front of the cyclist, causing the cyclist to collide with the motorist?  Does it matter if the driver used a turning signal?


Please see this post about right turns

Right Turns

The laws and safe cycling practices are the same whether the motorist and the cyclist are stopped or moving prior to the right turn.

The right turn signal is required in either case, and does not affect right-of-way.
