Ask a Cop



Tickets for Bicycle Riders?

The Question: Can Police Officers give tickets to bike riders for traffic violations?

The Answer: Yes. Bicycle riders are required by state law to obey all traffic laws and they can be cited for traffic violations. Bicycle Riders can also be cited/arrested for DWI (Driving While Impaired); nearly 40% of bicycle fatalities are caused by the bicyclist being impaired.
