MA Bike Safety
Marked Bicycle Facilities Crossing
Drivers should be required to yield for cyclists in crosswalks and other marked facilities, such as road crossings of bicycle or shared use paths.
The current law creates an obligation for drivers to yield for pedestrians in crosswalks but they are not required to yield for cyclists.
No changes to this law would relieve a cyclist from the duty to use reasonable caution when crossing a road.
Please note, this thread is not open for comment at this time.
This website is created by the Office of State Senator William N. Brownsberger for the purpose of creating an online dialogue around changes to state law that can improve cycling safety.
Thanks. Got it.
