same road, same rules
Bikes, like cars, are vehicles and people riding bikes must follow the same traffic laws as people driving other vehicles with some exceptions. Failure to follow the law can result in a citation that may go on your driving record. Normal traffic laws apply to people riding bikes.
go with the flow
People on bikes must travel in the same direction as traffic.
right to the road
Bike riders may use any lane on any street (except prohibited highways and freeways) and are not required to use bike lanes. You may use an entire lane at anytime if needed.
yield to people walking
People walking and using mobility devices have the right of way; yield to them in crosswalks, on sidewalks and shared areas.
obey stop signs and lights
Like all road users, people on bikes must stop at stop signs and obey traffic lights.
signal your turns
Signal lane changes and turns with your arm unless you need both arms to control your bike.
