Bike Safety Quiz: You vs. the Judge - Questions & Answers

If you recall, in the last issue we printed a few "Bike Safety Tips" that were authored by a Detroit area judge and published in a local newspaper. The judge offered numerous rules that should be followed to insure the safety of a bicyclist. We asked you to determine whether or not these tips were actual rules of law. Following is a re-print of those tips and the correct legal answers:


  1. A person on a bike should always wear a bike helmet. Head injuries are often more serious than other types of injuries and can be fatal.
  2. A person on a bike must always obey traffic signs; this includes stop signs, yield signs and traffic lights.
  3. A person should never ride a bike on a highway; bike paths should be used.
  4. One should be very careful riding a bike in the street, however, a busy road should not have bike riders traveling on it. It is a tragedy waiting to happen.
  5. A bike rider should always ride with traffic and on the right hand side of the street.
  6. If bicyclists are riding together, they should be in single file.If you ride at night, you should wear light colored or reflective clothing and should have a light on the front and a reflector on the rear of the bike.
