Cycling regulations in Santa Monica, California
In addition to state law, counties, cities, and towns may have their own traffic regulations. These are usually known as ordinances or codes.
These local regulations may not take away any rights listed in the state traffic laws, unless this option is expressly permitted by the state. They also may not permit a person riding a bike to do anything prohibited by state law.
