In California, one of the most popular recreational activities remains cycling along the roads. Most streets in Los Angeles do not include a separate bike lane. This results in the sharing of the roads with cars, trucks and other motor vehicles. Some of the most frequent cyclist or cycling accidents involve inattentive drivers, reckless driving speeds, intoxicated drivers and other careless driving behaviors.
While some automobile drivers may feel that bike riders should not be on the roads, this is a misconception. Cyclist and other bike riders have the right to share the streets with other automobile or motor vehicle drivers. Bicycles are not allowed on freeways.
