Provincetown Police encourage you to SHARE THE ROAD this summer.

PROVINCETOWN – State law says bicyclists have the right to use all public roads except for limited-access highways, following all traffic laws and using lights at night and hand signals. Most bicycling advocates construe that to mean that bicyclists have the same rights as motorists—including the right to take an entire lane for travel, since they are not impeding traffic by pedaling at a speed appropriate for their bicycle.

Our recommendation is to remember that just because the law allows it, to a certain degree, the obvious understanding on the road is if a bike can be safely ridden on the side of the road and allow cars to pass, that’s the thing to do, as a matter of courtesy.

Hence the concept– “Share the Road.”

Common sense saves lives!
