Illegal for a Georgia Cyclist to Attach Himself or Herself to a Vehicle on the Roadway (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-293)

Legal Commentary. It is against Georgia law for a person riding a bicycle, coaster, roller skates, sled, toy vehicle or other non-motorized transportation to attach himself to a vehicle on a Georgia roadway. This is probably something that most already know. Horseplay involving high speeds can be fatal or can lead to catastrophic injury. As an attorney who has handled many Georgia cycling injury and bicycle accidents, it is very tragic to see what happens sometimes when children are severely injured in automobile and bicycle accidents.
