Know Your Signs and Signals

Traffic signs and signals help all road users know what to do. There are lots of signs and signals that bicyclists (and drivers!) need to follow, so it’s important to understand what they mean.  
Read on to learn what each sign means to stay safe on the roads. 

Sign   Meaning
Stop Sign  Stop! Put one foot down and look both ways for traffic. 
One way only  The arrow shows which way traffic is traveling. Make sure to travel in that direction. 
Yield  Slow down! Wait for a safe gap in traffic before continuing. You must let other cars/bicyclists/pedestrians go first. 
Crossing ahead  Pedestrians are crossing the street. Get ready to slow down or stop if you see people crossing. 
Do Not Enter  You can’t bike here! These signs make sure you aren’t biking in the wrong direction. 
Speed limit  The number shows how many miles per hour cars can legally go. 
Bike lane  This road has a bike lane on it. If you're riding on the street, try to stay in the bike lane. 
Walk signal  You can cross the street, but always make sure to look both ways before you start! 

Be Seen to Be Safe

No matter how you're getting around — by foot, bike, or car — you should always be looking out for other people. This is especially important at night when it's harder to see. Remember these tips to stay seen on your bike at night: 

  • Your bicycle must be equipped with a front white light. 
  • Your bicycle must have a red reflector on the back or, even better, a solid or flashing red light. 
  • Avoid wearing all dark colors to be more visible.
