Ind. Law - In Indy, " Confusing laws vex Indiana drivers, cyclists"
Brian Easton had this story July 15th in the Indianapolis Star. A few quotes:
State law generally puts the burden on motorists to "exercise due caution" to avoid vulnerable road users. But it can be confusing for motorists what a cyclist is planning to do — and Worland said "rogue cyclists" who break the rules of the road make it that much more difficult for the two sides to get along.ILB: My biggest issue is cyclists who don't stop at red lights. One specific problem I've experienced twice when making a right turn on red, after carefully checking traffic and with my right turn signal on, has been having a cyclist appear out of nowhere from behind me, on the sidewalk to my right, and zoom through the red light just as I have been half-way through the right turn.
"That means stop at stop signs, stop at red lights ... there are a lot of cyclists that don't do that," Worland said. "It gives cyclists who are serious about it a bad rap."
