Police issue reminder about cycling laws


Hawaii Island police are reminding bicyclists they must follow all traffic laws that apply to motorists when they travel on public roadways.

In addition, bicyclists must ride in single file, as far to the right of the road as possible and on bike paths where provided. Bicycles may not be ridden on sidewalks or against the flow of traffic.

Motorists are advised to be aware of bicyclists sharing the road and to drive with caution, especially when passing a bicycle.

For more details about bicycle traffic laws, please refer to section 291C-145 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes.
