Rolling Stops Now Allowed for Bicyclists
For decades the law in Washington has been that bicyclists must obey the same traffic control signals as motor vehicles.
At least four states and some local governments have adopted laws allowing bicyclists to make rolling stops, treating stop signs as yield signs.
A new Washington law will allow rolling stops for bicyclists state-wide effective October 1, 2020. Bicyclists are still required to come to a complete stop and railroad crossings and for school bus stop signs.
