Does a bicyclist have to obey the same traffic laws as a motorist in Michigan?

Yes. Section 257.657 of the Michigan Vehicle Code states:

“Each person riding a bicycle in Michigan upon a roadway has all of the rights and is subject to all of the duties applicable to the driver of a vehicle by this chapter, except as to special regulations in this article and except as to the provisions of this chapter which by their nature do not have application.”
