Florida Bicycle Law Enforcement Guide

A Review of Florida's Bicycle Traffic Laws to Help with Warnings, Citations, and Crash Reports

Florida Bicycle Association

"Operating in traffic is a cooperative activity, governed by rules. Traffic rules incorporate practices found, through experience, to facilitate safe and efficient travel. Since not everyone has enough experience to appreciate the rationale of the rules, seasoned and informed enforcement is necessary to help instill safe habits. Officers exercise discretion in enforcement actions; an effective officer is prepared to explain the principles involved when a cyclist or motorist uses poor judgment."
