RIDING

Bikes should be treated like a vehicle when they are on the road. Unless otherwise stated, bicyclists are required to follow the same rules drivers are required to follow. Outside of high pedestrian traffic areas such as downtowns and business districts, bikes are generally allowed on sidewalks.

LAWS

  • Bicyclists are subject to all the same traffic laws as cars, unless otherwise noted. 

  • Scooters are also subject to regular car traffic laws including stoplights, stop signs, and traffic signs. On a scooter, you must always yield to pedestrians. Be sure to park scooters safely, away from curbs and in a place that will not block a person with disabilities from using the sidewalk.

  • According to State law, bicyclists may proceed through red lights, but they must stop first and make sure there’s no oncoming traffic.

  • Bicyclists have to ride in the same direction as traffic, on the right side of the road, and obey all traffic signals. Some exceptions include roads designated as bicycle routes. Finally, do not ride bikes on sidewalks within business districts.
