In addition to provincial or territorial law, cities and towns may have their own traffic regulations. These are usually known as ordinances or codes.
There are often regulations in other jurisdictions, including university and college campuses, and military bases.
These local regulations may not take away any rights listed in the provincial/territorial traffic laws, unless this option is expressly permitted by the province. They also may not permit a person riding a bike to do anything prohibited by provincial/territorial law.
See below for the municipal regulations that influence your ride in Greater Vancouver.
