In Pennsylvania, USA. The motor vehicle code stipulates that a bicycle is a vehicle, and as such has the RIGHT to the entire lane, the cyclist however, must obey ALL the rules of the road. They MUST stop at stop signs and lights, they MUST signal when turning, most motor vehicle operators don't do that. They must stay in their lane, no driving against traffic on the opposing shoulder. The only roads closed to bicycles are limited access Motor Vehicle Only highways. I've seen as many bad cyclists as I have motor vehicle operators, so there is plenty of blame to go arouond. Yes, I both drive a car AND ride a bike.
