I have been practicing law for over 25 years and have been an active cyclist for at least that long. I ride on the local roads, and I know firsthand the dangers that cyclists face. I am aware of the vulnerability of a bicyclist as compared to a motorist, and I certainly realize that the motorist is the one with the deadly weapon.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Milwaukee is a community of people who enjoy the outdoors and active lifestyles such as bicycle riding. Relatively speaking, Wisconsin offers excellent bike-riding opportunities compared to many other parts of the country. Unfortunately, many car and truck drivers do not respect the rights of bicyclists. As a result, many cyclists are injured because of the negligence of these motorists. Even though bicyclists have the same rights as motorists, it is my experience that the typical motorist feels that their rights to the road are superior to that of the bicyclist. This is not true.
- Bicycles are considered vehicles and are granted all the rights that apply to operators of vehicles. Wis. Stat. §346.02(4)
- Bicyclists may ride two abreast on any street as long as other traffic is not impeded. Wis. Stat. §346.80(2)(3)
- An operator of a motor vehicle must allow at least three feet clearance when passing a bicyclist. Wis. Stat. §346.075
In closing, I would like you to know that I very much enjoy the work I do. But at the same time, I am nothing without you. I take my responsibility very seriously. I tell the truth, and I keep my word. My clients call me Barry.
