In Florida the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists have the same rights to the roadway, and must obey the same traffic laws as/
the operators of other vehicles. These laws include stopping for stop signs and red lights, riding with the flow of traffic, using lights at night
and yielding the right-of-way when entering a roadway.
With few exceptions, there is only one road, and it is up to cyclists and motorists to treat each other with care and respect. Strict adherence
to the law is the foundation for this respect.
Traffic Law Highlights Bicycle Regulations (see Section 316.2065, ES.)
* Bicyclists must obey all traffic controls and signals.
* Bicyclists must use a fixed, regular seat for riding.
* A bicycle may not be used to carry more persons at one time than the number for which it is designed or equipped.
* An adult bicyclist may carry a child in a backpack or sling, child seat or trailer designed to carry children.
* A bicyclist may not allow a passenger to remain in a child seat or carrier when not in immediate control of the bicycle.
* Bicyclists and passengers under age 16 must wear a helmet approved by ANSI. Snell or any other standard recognized by Florida.
* At least one hand must be kept on the handlebars while riding.
* Parents and guardians must not knowingly allow a child or minor ward to violate any provision of this section.
* Every bicycle must be equipped with a brake or brakes which allow the rider to stop within 25 feet from a speed of 10 miles per hour
on dry, level, clean pavement.
Sidewalk Riding (see Section 316.2065, ES.)
* When riding on sidewalks or in crosswalks, a bicyclist has the same rights and duties as a pedestrian.
* A bicyclist riding on sidewalks or in crosswalks must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and must give an audible signal before
Lighting (see Section 316.2065, E.S.)
* A bicycle operated between sunset and sunrise must be equipped with a lamp on the front exhibiting a white light visible from 500 feet
to the front and both a red reflector and a lamp on the rear exhibiting a red light visible from 600 feet to me rear.
* Additional lighting is permitted and recommended. See the "Night Riding" section for safety tips.
Roadway Position (see Section 316.2065, F.S.)
* A bicyclist who is not traveling at the same speed of other traffic must ride as close as practicable to the right hand curb or edge of the
roadway hbicvclit ma, leave the ponion onf ihe ro.'d in the ii-wlk. ing irtuailnsw hen p..e-ing making a left turn tni void
