Bicycle Accidents in Reno, Nevada
Attorney Steve Klearman is an avid cyclist and strongly believes that the
rights of cyclists must be protected.
When a driver is impaired, distracted or speeding, bicyclists are often
at the greatest risk. Bicyclists obey the same traffic laws as cars, and
drivers must respect their presence. Drivers who try to pass too closely
or will force a cyclist off the road are simply being negligent. When
a motorist eventually collides into a cyclist, the victim can suffer from
severe injuries such as brain trauma, fractures, spinal injuries or serious burns.

Under Nevada law, a motorist must not:
- Intentionally interfere with the movement of a person lawfully riding a bicycle
- Overtake and pass a person riding a bicycle unless it can be done safely
without endangering the cyclist

- Enter, stop, stand, park or drive in bike lanes
And a motorist must:
- Exercise due care to avoid a collision with a cyclist
- Give an audible warning with their horn to avoid collision
