Drivers of automobiles in Wisconsin must act responsibly when it comes to cyclists. They owe several duties to cyclists including the duty to lookout, maintain appropriate speed, and to yield the right away. Often, drivers feel the cyclists should not be on the road and ignore these duties. Other times, drivers may simply be negligent in failing to maintain their duties. When a driver’s negligence causes injury to a cyclist, often times it may be serious or even fatal.
