Bikes: That What I’m reading About Today October 21, 2008Posted by Attorney Jonathan Groth in Motorcycle Collisions.

On any given day I bet no one would guess what I’m reading. Some days it is medical records about a cervical fracture. On other days it is a study about drunk drivers. Well, today I was reading a publication from the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin entitled, “Bike Sense, The Wisconsin Bicycle Operator’s Manual.”
I’m looking for some information specific to a recent bicycle vs. car collision. Much of the information you probably remember from driver’s ed. For example, bicycles should drive with traffic. It’s safer.
What I was looking for and found was this passage:
You may pass on the right if it is safe to do so. It is safe only if you can maintain at least three feet clearance from both stopped and moving vehicles. When passing, be sure to check for drivers positioning themselves to make a right turn. Motorists may not signal their turns and often do not expect you to be to their right. This is a common cause of crashes.
A recent client was told that he was partially at fault simply because he passed a stopped car on the right. Now, the police report gives the opinion that my client was partially at fault even though there isn’t a basis for it in the law.
If you get a chance, read the bicycle manual. It’s always good to get a refresher on bike safety. Especially, nowadays when more people are avoiding high gas prices and getting back on their bicycles.

I was driving home the other day and traffic was horrendous. There was a collision involving a bicycle and a car. An ambulance and fire truck were present taking care of the injured bicyclist. There must have been a dozen or so people standing around who had gotten out of their vehicles to help.
This reminded me of something. If you see a collision please give your name, number, address and/or e-mail to the parties involved or, better yet, the police at the scene.
If you don’t want to give your address then a telephone number or email is fine.
Many times I’ll get involved in a case a few weeks or months after the collision. The person that caused the collision may have admitted fault to the injured party and the witnesses at the scene. But, when confronted by their insurance company and the potential of higher premiums some people’s memory changes. That is why it is important for witnesses who know the truth to share their information with the parties and police.
If you were involved in a collision wouldn’t you want others to stand up and tell the truth too?

Bicycling and running in Wisconsin. Gotta love it. Today is one of those days. Not too hot and not too cool. Some cloud cover so you won’t overheat or get sun burned. It is the time of year when we (runners and bicyclists) emerge from our houses.
This brings me to an article I just read in the Sheboygan Press. I practice personal injury law across Wisconsin so I try to read more newspapers than average John. Anyway, a cyclist in Ledgeview was hit by a driver who didn’t look before he drove. The cyclist is in the hospital in Brown County (St. Vincent).
Sometimes maybe drivers forget about bicyclists and runners because of our long winters. Let this article be a reminder to look to your left, right and all around keeping a special eye out for bicyclists and runners on the road.
I’ll be running this week. I appreciate your help to keep us safe.
