I think an exception would be made for avoiding a crash and the rider would not be cited. They might get a ticket if they caused another crash while avoiding a potential one. Say if while avoiding the rear end they pulled out into traffic and were t-boned.So because the law "says so" if you are only just stopped and a guy texting is about to rear end you, you are supposed to wait the appropriate amount of time first before getting the heck out of there. Do I have that correct? Remember, you want to legal now!
