Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
When riding a bicycle, you must obey all stop signs and lights as you would when driving a car. Bicyclists should act as drivers of a motor vehicle. This means obeying the rules of the road just as you would when driving a car. Traffic signs and signals are not suggestions; they apply to bicyclists as well. So obey traffic signs and remember—it’s up to us to set a good example.
