As a bicycle accident lawyer, I am frequently asked what “the law” requires of cyclists vs. motorists in various situations.  Generally speaking, cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists in New Jersey.  Application of the law to specific facts is not always straightforward, but using this general rule of thumb will give you a good, common-sense starting point.  Another great reference is the NJ DOT cycling handbook, which can be accessed here.
