Michigan bicycle attorney, Bryan Waldman, regularly publishes “A Legal Handbook for Michigan Cyclists,” which is a popular informational resource used throughout the bicycling community and is available at many local Michigan bike shops. A new version with recently passed bike laws is now available!
The laws that apply to almost anything related to a bicycle are governed by state law. This includes the rules for riding a bicycle and the rules for driving a motor vehicle when a bicycle is on the road. State law also typically dictates what insurance claims are available when there is an injury or property damage as the result of an incident involving the use of a bicycle. This handbook is intended to be a legal resource for residents and visitors of Michigan who ride bikes.
