Las Vegas Bicycle Lanes

Everyday while giving driving lessons in Las Vegas I watch people driving in the bike lanes.

Often driving right on the divider strip. This is also an automatic fail on the drivers test.

Per regulations we are suppose to actually change lanes when we see a bike up ahead.

Also when crossing over a bike lane to get into a traffic turning lane you must get all the way over and minimize your vehicle crossing the boundary line.

Never turn in front of a bike you meet at the corner.

  • At intersections, motorists must yield to cyclists as they would for other vehicles and pedestrians.

  • When passing a cyclist, motorists must move into an adjacent lane to the left if possible. If not, the motorist must pass with at least 3 feet of clearance.

  • Motorists must yield the right-of-way to a cyclist on a bicycle path or in a bike lane.

  • Motorists may not stop, park or drive on a designated bicycle path or lane unless they are entering or leaving an alley or driveway, performing official duties, directed by a police officer, or in an emergency situation.

  • A cyclist is required to ride on the right side of the roadway.

  • A bicycle must be equipped with a white lamp in the front, visible from at least 500 feet.
