New York Hit and Run Law
Motor vehicle operators must be attentive to all bicycle riders. They must equate a bicycle with a motor vehicle and observe the same laws, including respecting separate bicycle lanes. Many cities, including New York City, have constructed special bike lanes and have plans to construct additional lanes in the near future. However, many motor vehicle drivers do not respect the bicyclists’ right to share the road.
