Passing two wheeled vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles by Alpharetta attorney Scott Miller

All 2 wheeled vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles included, have the same rights of the road as any four wheeled vehicle. Both bicycles and motorcycles are permitted to have the full width of a single lane when traveling.  It is permissible to pass a bicycle in the same lane that the bicycle occupies  if the bicycle has moved to the far right side of the lane.  Sufficient room in the lane must exist for the motorized vehicle to pass the bicycle and leave at least 3 feet between the motorized vehicle and the bicycle.
It is not legal to pass a motorcycle in the same lane that the motorcycle occupies.  Drivers must pass a motorcycle in an adjacent traffic lane.
