With the stretch of warm weather last month, it's time to remind motorists that, by law, roads (except for interstate highways and expressways) are to be shared with bicycles, in-line skaters and pedestrians. Recent changes to Vehicle and Traffic Law should make for safer biking and walking along our highways, but motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians must know the applicable laws governing this shared usage. Every year there are new bicyclists, and they, and their parents may not know all the vehicle and traffic laws that apply, and even seasoned bikers are often ignorant of the laws, or perhaps chose not to obey them. Following is what you should know about the applicable laws for bicycling, in-line skating and walking along the road.
