Bike Safety for Kids

Q: Can My Child Ride a Bicycle in the Street?

Yes. Ohio law does not include an age requirement for riding bikes on a roadway, however riders of all ages must follow the rules of the road. Make sure your child can ride safely and predictably by evaluating his abilities.

Q: What road rules do kids have to follow when they are biking?

One key Ohio bike law is that bicyclists must ride “as near to the right side of the roadway as practicable,” yet, a rider does not have to ride along the right side of a lane when it is unsafe to do so.

SAFETY TIPS FOR KIDS

• Wear a helmet that fits properly. (Get a helmet fitting PDF at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website)

• Adjust your child’s bike to fit his height and make sure the bike is safe to ride

• See and be seen: wear bright clothing when you ride, watch for cars, etc.

• Use verbal and non-verbal communication with motorists through eye contact and signals found at NHTSA.
