Bicycles Allowed Entire Lane by DJ-Erock Bicycles Allowed Entire Lane by DJ-Erock
If any of these conditions are present, you ride in the center of your lane. Lane placement is important for ensuring your safety on the roads, and the farther you put yourself in the lane, the more room cars tend to give you. (and if they don't, you have room to move over to your right.)

Half the speed limit? I don't think I have ever heard that one. Interesting. I live in Florida and generally, a bicyclist is granted the whole lane, but very little in actual practice.

In the Quest, I can sometimes maintain 30 mph. That's over half of 55. There are a couple stretches of road that I do 30 mph on and that IS the speed limit!

I prefer sidewalks and bicycle roads if they are not too full of cracks, pot holes, and interfering streets. The cycling conditions may be inferior to the car road, but, I rule! On car roads, I even have to look out for the Smart Car! How humiliating! On the bicycle route, I'M the boss. In the words of "Milton" just before Lucifer fell into the pit, "I'd rather rule in hell than serve in paradise!"
(I got that from a Star Trek episode!)

Are helmets the law in the us? Up here you can take the full lane only when instructed, but you have to have a helmet or you can get fined.

Depends on the state you live in. Where I live, in Ohio, helmets are not mandatory (thank goodness.) I have seen evidence that such laws do more to discourage cycling than prevent injury, which makes cycling more dangerous because of the fewer numbers. (That is just my opinion based on internet research; the subject is of course highly debated.)

But what do you mean by being allowed to take a lane "only when instructed?" Who does the instructing and under what circumstances?
