Resource Guide on Laws Related to Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety

This resource guide contains a compilation of vehicle and traffic laws that were judged by the guide's developers to have the potential to affect pedestrian or bicycle safety, either positively or negatively. It is designed for easy use by anyone interested in vehicle and traffic law and pedestrian or bicycle safety. This might include state and local bicycle and pedestrian professionals, legislative service bureaus, and others who work with bicycle and pedestrian laws. It can be used to select laws that enhance pedestrian or bicycle safety, to assess a state's position with respect to other states or the state of the art or to examine the extent to which the prevailing vehicle and traffic law may impact the generation of pedestrian or bicycle crashes, particularly those with motor vehicles.
