Bicyclist’s Rights & Responsibilities

The Texas Transportation Code states that "A person operating a bicycle has the rights and duties applicable to a driver operating a vehicle". To summarize the legal code: bicycles have the right to ride on public roadways because they are deemed a legitimate transportation vehicle by legislature. The City does not have the authority to restrict bicycles from local roadways, but TxDOT may restrict them from certain limited access highways. Below are a few links to the Texas Transportation Code that deals with bicycle operations.
