The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee joined together to remind people enjoying warmer weather to be sure they are on the proper side of the road when they bike, walk or skate. Pedestrians, skateboarders and joggers should use sidewalks where available and if not then travel facing traffic in the lane nearest to them. Bicyclists are to travel in the same direction as other vehicles and are required to obey the same traffic laws as motor vehicles.
