By law, bicycles on the roadway are vehicles, with the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles. Yet cyclists are oftentimes not treated with respect by other vehicles.There are also specific Maine laws that protect cyclists, such as the law that requires a minimum of three feet between a passing motorist and a cyclist. Unfortunately many drivers are unaware of this law or do not follow it.
