Vehicles: Interacting with bicyclists
Bicyclists are legal users of the road.
As such, they are entitled to the full use of a travel lane, although a bicyclist may choose to use the shoulder.
When passing a bicycle, allow a minimum of three feet of space between your vehicle and the bicycle.
Avoid turning across the path of a bicyclist. Most crashes involving a motor vehicle and an adult bicyclist happen when a motorist is turning left.
Page 62 of the Wisconsin Motorist Handbook covers it pretty well.
I am not even going to talk about the bicyclists that do think signs and stoplights, for that matter any rules, don’t apply to them. I will save that for another post! Page 62 of the Wisconsin Motorist Handbook covers it pretty well.
Bicyclists: Interacting with vehicles
Obey all traffic controls, the same as any other mode of transportation. Stop signs and traffic lights are for bicyclists, too. Travel in the same direction as motor vehicles. Riding the wrong way is associated with 25–30% of all crashes between a bicycle and a motor vehicle.

constructed under s. 84.06 (I 1).
City puts bicyclists directly in the path of motorists
Bicycle advocates say bikers in the center of the lane helps slow down traffic.

Here is a way for the state to get more revenue, require all bike owners to pay for a permit to use the bike on roads and have a license plate from the DMV. Don’t you think the bikes are not paying their fair share of the costs to construct, fix, and maintain the roads like the cars (fuel tax) and trucks (road use tax & fuel tax) do? The left likes taxes, but my guess is they will not like this one and would oppose it and fight it!
