    A bicyclist should ride:

    • A.

      Ride far enough out in the lane to avoid the unexpected from parked cars.

    • C.

      Ride in the middle the traffic lane.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ride far enough out in the lane to avoid the unexpected from parked cars.
    Explanation
    It is important for a bicyclist to ride far enough out in the lane to avoid the unexpected from parked cars because parked cars can suddenly open their doors or pull out into the lane without warning. By riding further out in the lane, the bicyclist increases their visibility to drivers and reduces the risk of a collision with a parked car. Riding on the sidewalk is not recommended as it can be dangerous for both the bicyclist and pedestrians, and riding in the middle of the traffic lane can impede the flow of traffic and increase the risk of accidents.

By using hand signals, cyclists can communicate their actions to drivers, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting safer sharing of the road. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."

    • C.

      Next to the curb.

    Correct Answer
    B. In the travel lane next to the "right turn only" lane.
    Explanation
    A bicyclist intending to go straight at an intersection that has a "right turn only" lane should be in the travel lane next to the "right turn only" lane. This is because the bicyclist is not planning to make a right turn, so it would be incorrect to be in the "right turn only" lane. Being in the travel lane next to the "right turn only" lane allows the bicyclist to continue straight while staying clear of vehicles making right turns.

This means that they have the right to use the road and are subject to the same laws and regulations as other drivers. Bicyclists must follow traffic rules, signals, and yield when necessary, just like any other vehicle on the road. This ensures the safety and fair treatment of both bicyclists and motorists, promoting a harmonious coexistence on the road.
