Right of Way


Brett asked:  Car traveling a 4-lane road going north. Bike going east to west crossing said road not at the light but 25 feet before light and crosswalk and crosses road while the green light gives north/south traffic right of way. Bike gets hit by said car, the driver of which gets a careless driving ticket for $166.00.  How is that possible?


Based on the information you have provided, I cannot explain the citation.  There may be other information that is not included, such as that provided by the cyclist or witnesses.  You should contact the police department and ask the officer who wrote the ticket.
