Bicyclist and Skate Boarders of the rules of the road for the safety and enjoyment of everyone
Bicycle riders and automobile drivers follow the same rules and have the same rights. Example: Cars must stop at a stop sign, and bicycles must stop at a stop sign. Always ride with traffic. Bicyclists must travel in the same direction as cars. Bicyclists must not obstruct traffic and must ride as close as practicable to the right hand side of the roadway.
A person under 18 years of age cannot operate a bicycle or ride as a passenger without a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet that meets the standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or the SNELL Standards for Protective Headgear.
You have all the rights of a pedestrian but must obey many of the same laws as vehicles:
Obey all signs and signals, including speed limit and stop signs, yield right-of-way signs and traffic signals: Entering the street. Never enter the street suddenly or freestyle down your driveway. You may end up in the path of a vehicle.
