Pedestrians and bicyclists must share our roads with cars, trucks and buses. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who do not fully understand how to safely share the road with pedestrians and bicyclists, especially in a congested tourist area such as Atlantic City. It only takes a moment for a negligent driver to cause a life changing injury or death to a pedestrian or bicyclist.
Bicyclists must adhere to the same rules of the road that drivers do, including using turn signals, riding only on the right side of the road, and obeying traffic signals and signs. That said, drivers must be aware of bicycle riders and treat them like any other vehicle on the road. Those who operate motor vehicles are responsible for safely navigating the roads along-side bicyclists.
In New Jersey, drivers are held to a higher standard with regard to pedestrian safety. Pedestrians have the right of way when walking in marked crosswalks unless traffic is being regulated by a police officer or traffic control signal. Drivers who are not paying attention to traffic lights, speed limits or crosswalks risk colliding with pedestrians and causing injury or even death.
