Cyclists' rights in crosswalks (Falls Church News Press story)

The Falls Church News-Press published my letter to the editor regarding cyclists' legal rights at crosswalks

This was in response to prior responses to their story about the theft of five recently-installed W&OD crosswalk signs warning cars to stop for pedestrians/cyclists.

Virginia law is pretty clear:  Cyclists may ride in crosswalks (unless signed otherwise) and cars must yield to cyclists in crosswalks just as they must yield to pedestrians.

Post links to your maps/routes on Bicycling.com (Trimble Outdoors) or MapMyRide.com and I'll embed them in a new post.

Post other links & I'll add them to the link file.
