Cyclists are equal road users who have rights and obligations on the roads and must obey the rules of the road (KET) at the start of the cycling season, reminds Some of the most important rules will help you feel safer on the road and not endanger yourself, but others.

The road or the bike path? Cyclists should use specially designated lanes or cycle lanes. Driveways, sidewalks or pedestrian paths are permitted only where there are no bicycle lanes or lanes. If the roadside is inadequate, cycling on the roads is possible with the right lane as close as possible to the right. It is recommended to get off the bicycle before crossing the carriageway if you need to turn left, turn or cross the road. Both cyclists and pedestrians must not obstruct pedestrians.

Cycling on freeways and motorways is prohibited. Also, the Road Traffic Code prevents cyclists from being towed or trapped by other vehicles. Crossing - Walking "Often seen: As soon as the green traffic light is lit, cyclists and pedestrians are passing through the pedestrian crossing at full speed. Such conduct is prohibited, as expressly stated in the road traffic regulations. If you want to cross the street, you have to get off the bike and take it across the street," said Jonas Jankūnas of

Of course, this does not apply to special bicycle lanes that cross the carriageway. They are usually painted green. In the absence of traffic lights specifically designed for cycling, the lane is only accessible when passing vehicles on the crossing. Waistcoat or headlamps When planning road and street use, the bicycle must have a decent break and acoustic signal, with a red reflector or red light at the rear and orange reflectors attached to the wheel spokes on both sides. It is recommended that you attach a rear-view mirror to your bike to see what's going on behind you. While rotating, you must display the signals manually. "In the middle of 2014, changes to the rules forced cyclists to ride with reflective vests and headlights on. However, few know that the rules do not require wearing a vest at all times. If you do not want to wear a vest, you can switch on the lights on the front and back of the bike. Or vice versa: you can wear a vest without switching on the lights," J. Jankūnas revealed.

By the way, these requirements apply only when driving on the road. When cycling or in the yard, cyclists may not wear a vest or switch on the lights. Helmet - Under 18 Only bicycle riders and passengers under 18 are required to wear and wear a helmet. For older persons, a helmet is recommended but not required. Remember that cycling is forbidden while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is subject to the same fine as car drivers who violate these rules. Comprehensive police comment Cold weather has increased the number of cyclists on the streets, but as winter gets used to, cyclists and motorists simply overlook each other on the road. Some (non-winter) car drivers and cyclists have not yet mastered their driving skills and the necessary caution. Police officers recall the following requirements for cyclists: - Bicycle access is restricted to persons under 14 years of age and to persons under 12 years of age who have completed the appropriate training and are certified by a training institution. Children under 8 years of age are allowed on the bicycle under adult supervision. There is no age limit for bicycle riders in the living area. The bicycle rider is only allowed on the road with a bicycle with a good brake and audible warning. There must be a red light reflector or the red light at the end of the bicycle, with orange light reflectors attached to the wheel spokes on either side. The bicycle rider must wear a bright-colored vest with reflective tapes or white light at the front and a red light at the rear when riding a bicycle. When driving on the road at night or in poor visibility, the bicycle must have a white light on the front and a red light on the back of the bicycle, and the bicycle rider must wear a bright vest with reflective materials. Bicycle driver (passenger) under 18 must wear a cyclist's helmet when traveling on the road. It is recommended that a person over the age of 18 on a bicycle path be worn and fastened with a bicycle helmet.

Cycling is allowed only on bicycle lanes or cycle lanes and, were not available, on a suitable sidewalk (with asphalt or concrete pavement) according to the direction of traffic. When a bicycle lane, bicycle lane, sidewalk is not available or accessible, sidewalks or one lane of the carriageway are permitted, as close as possible to its right edge, except in the cases specified in paragraph 106 of the Rules and an obstacle, to drive straight when only the right of the first lane is allowed to turn. When riding on the sidewalk, pedestrian and bicycle path, sidewalk, the bicycle rider must give way to pedestrians, not obstruct or endanger them, and allow pedestrians to travel at speeds close to pedestrian speed (3 to 7 km / h), leaving such a gap from the side to keep traffic safe. Bicycle riders are advised to turn left, turn or cross the road, if necessary, to dismount the bicycle and cross the carriageway when the traffic conditions so require. When approaching a carriageway, a bicycle rider must in all cases reduce the speed and can continue to move only when he is confident that the ride is safe and will not interfere with other road users. Bicycle riders must pass vehicles in the carriageway to cross the carriageway where there is no traffic control, except when crossing exits from adjacent areas, residential areas, yards, parking areas when crossing the carriageway other drivers spin. The bicycle rider is allowed to drive in the lane only in the same direction as other vehicles in the adjacent lane. On a bike lane or bike lane, the bicycle rider must drive as close as possible to the right edge of the lane (dedicated lane) or lane. If a pedestrian and bicycle path or sidewalk has a horizontal sign marked with a bicycle path (sidewalk), the bicycle rider must only ride on it and as close to its right edge. In traffic control areas, bicycle riders must observe traffic lights with the bicycle symbol or, in their absence, traffic lights. Cyclists are not allowed to: ride in the carriageway if the bicycle lanes are provided, except as provided in the Rules; motorways and expressways; drive without holding at least one hand on the steering wheel; to carry passengers in the absence of special seating positions; to carry, tow or push goods which obstruct driving or endanger other road users; be towed by other vehicles; towing vehicles other than trailers; drive in other vehicles; crossing pedestrian crossings.
