Louisiana bicyclists have rights. This website educates Louisiana bicyclists and motorists on the rights of bicyclists riding on Louisiana roads. Bicyclists also have duties when riding, and this website will inform you on these duties as well.
The information on this website is divided between laws and background material. The Bicycle Law section will provide what you need to know as a bicyclist in Louisiana, including the rights and duties of bicyclists on Louisiana roads. The Background section provides some lagniappe as to the recent changes in Louisiana bike law and the stories that substantiate those changes.
We hope the material on this site, and the material on our local sites regarding bike law developments, will prove useful to you in your cycling endeavors in Louisiana. If you are a motorist, as most of us Louisianians are, we hope the material on this site gives you a foundation for how to treat bicyclists in Louisiana, who are just as deserving of respect as motorists.
