Road Rights Question #45
Take the quiz! Did you guess correctly?
The above picture shows a bicyclist proceeding through an intersection controlled by stop signs. It is legal for the bicyclist to proceed through the intersection without stopping first?
The Answer: YES, IF
It is LEGAL for a bicyclist to proceed through an intersection controlled by stop signs IF the bicyclist first slows his/her bicycle down to a reasonable speed. This enables a bicyclist to yield right-of-way to any vehicle or pedestrian within an intersection or so close as to “…constitute an immediate hazard…” before traveling through the intersection.
This answer is based on Idaho state code 49-720 (1).
