JACKSON, Wyo. — With an increase of motorists, bicyclists, and e-bike users in town, it’s more important than ever to adhere to the laws of the road. Cyclists in Jackson are asked to follow laws to ensure the safety of others while getting around town.
However, the cycling laws in town aren’t always clear to riders. Therefore, the Jackson Police Department put it simply by citing Wyoming State Statute 31-5-702, “if you can’t do it in a car, you can’t do it on a bicycle.”
So what does this mean in terms of how you operate your bike? Here are the rules:
Technically, the hands-free ordinance only applies to motor vehicles, however, W.S.S 31-5-702 also states that individuals can’t carry anything that would prevent the use of both hands to control their bike.
Biking while intoxicated
“We support those individuals attempting to do the right thing by using alternate transportation rather than driving a motor vehicle,” said the Jackson Police Department. However, if someone were to put themselves or others in harm by riding, a “DUI may be an appropriate charge.”
Four-way stops, like the cluster along Kelly Ave., have shown time and time again that not everyone is sure how they work. Follow these four rules to a four-way stop to help keep traffic flowing smoothly and safely.
