Do bicyclists have the “right of way”?

It all depends. In the Texas Driver’s Handbook it says “in every situation, right-of-way is something to be given, not taken.” And as a cyclist, you just can’t take something that is not being given. Yes, legally you are right and you had the right-of-way, but when you start arguing about rights, the damage has been done. Yes, you have the right of way, but it’s far better to not have to argue about rights.
