Safety Tip #8 – Bicycle Rules of the Road
Bicycles are required to obey the same rules as other vehicles, have the same rights and responsibilities, must stay as far to the right as is practicable (left or right on one-way street) and travel in the same direction as other traffic. Equipment rules for bicycles require reflector lights and a headlamp (these are available at any reputable bicycle shop, on-line and at other retail outlets) when riding at or after dusk. Helmets are required for children under the age of 18; these are optional but strongly recommended for adults.
