Laws and Safety Tips for Bicyclists,
Pedestrians, & Motorists
Sharing the Road in Virginia offers safety procedures and traffic regulations for all users of Virginia’s roads and paths. This guide will help bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists safely use Virginia’s transportation network.
Like motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are subject to the Code of Virginia section on motor vehicles (Title 46.2) which may be accessed online from www.Virginia.gov, the official Web site of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
