Bike Laws and Safety


Below is a video on bike laws and safety produced by MassBike and co-produced by Boston PD, with a grant from DPH. MassBike is looking for feedback, or even a count of how many officers have seen the video.

"Shifting Gears: Bicyclists & Public Safety" presents best practices for Massachusetts law enforcement officers on the most important bicyclist safety issues. The video training covers Massachusetts laws that apply to bicyclists and to motorists interacting with bicyclists, and demonstrates many common scenarios. The training does not cover every law applicable to bicyclists - it focuses on laws and behaviors with the most potential to impact public safety. The information in the video is based on Massachusetts law, and may not be consistent with the laws of other states.
