Bicycles in the 2013 California Driver Handbook

CA DMV California Driver Handbook 2013

I haven’t looked the California Driver Handbook since 2010. Since then, the DMV has added significant bicycle safety content.

As in previous editions, several paragraphs are devoted to cyclist rights. The 2013 edition expands on this section by explaining sharrows and describing situations where cyclists might cycle down the middle of the lane.

Perhaps more importantly, the 2013 Driver Manual integrates bicycle safety throughout the text, reminding those behind the windshield that bicycles can be expected on California roads.
