Is It Illegal to Ride a Bicycle on the Sidewalk in the City of Buffalo?

This is a straightforward question. Unfortunately, the answer is not easily accessible for anyone who wants to comply with the rules of the road. Because of the inaccessibility of the law and the growing interest and use of bicycles in Buffalo, it is time to take steps to make the rule widely available so that our streets are safer.

Bicyclists May Need Greater Protection to Prevent Accidents

Buffalo is seeing terrific upgrades to its bicycle infrastructure. The upgrades have included the installation of 11.3 miles of bike lanes in 2013. These lanes will hopefully not only encourage bicycling within Buffalo but also make it safer. A new report out of Rochester indicates, however, that a bicycle safety law has not been enforced.
