- Obey all traffic signs and signals; bicyclists have all the rights and duties of any other vehicle driver.
- Yield to pedestrians on sidewalks and crosswalks; give an audible signal before overtaking a pedestrian.
- When passing a bicycle, parked motor vehicle, or pedestrian, all bicyclists and motor vehicle drivers must leave at least three feet clearance until they have safely passed the other person, bicycle, or motor vehicle.
- Arm signals are required before turning. Learn them, and use them.
- Ride with the traffic.
- Ride as close as possible to the right hand curb or edge of road way except when overtaking a vehicle; preparing for a left turn; or avoiding fixed or moving objects, surface hazards, or narrow-width lanes.
- No more than two bicyclists may ride side by side within a single lane.
- Avoid collisions with pedestrians by paying attention to signs and pavement markings.
- Walk your bike when you make the transition from the street to a parking spot and you have to cross a sidewalk; it’s usually a short distance, and you won't have to worry about running into someone.
- Dismount areas are designated locations on campus where you must walk your bike. Watch for the signs, and walk your bike in those areas.
- Headlights and reflectors are required by Texas law for night-time riding. Be safer by becoming more visible. Wear light-colored clothing and use lights.
- Bicyclists may not carry any packages which prevent the individual from keeping at least one hand on the handle bars.
- Bicycles cannot carry more people than they are designed to carry.
- You may not attach other moving objects to your bike or attach your bike to other moving objects while on a roadway.
- Use a rearview mirror. The more you can see, the fewer surprises you'll encounter.
