In every province and territory in Canada, and in every state in the USA, a person riding a bicycle has the same rights—and the same duties—as a person operating a motor vehicle.
The only exceptions are:
• where the law specifies otherwise, or
• where a right or duty cannot apply to someone operating a bike.
The laws can vary widely from one province or state to another, and from one city to another.
Here we will be posting the laws for many provinces and states, with links to municipal regulations for select locations.
