Bicycle Laws in Illinois; the Illinois State Bar Warns You of Important Laws

Question: My friends and I plan to do a great deal of bicycle riding across Illinois. What bicycle laws should we be aware of?Answer: When riding a bicycle on Illinois roads, you must obey the same traffic laws, signs and signals as motorists. You should ride in the direction of traffic; riding against traffic is unlawful. If you ride at night, your bike must have a front light visible from at least 500 feet and a rear red reflector visible from up to 600 feet. It is also important to know Illinois’ right-of-way laws.
