State traffic laws require bicyclists to “give way to the right in favor of the overtaking vehicle” and prohibits bicyclists from “unnecessarily” obstructing “the normal movement of traffic,” according to Neiman’s ruling. Motorists may only pass bicyclists at a safe distance when passing within the same lane or they must wait until a safe opportunity to pass by using all or part of an adjacent lane.
