1. This may not seem like an important distinction, and for the major things, it doesn’t really come up; however, New Jersey is one of only four states which does not consider bikes to be vehicles. It’s also a state that considers any public road and street that cars can run on-city streets and side streets alike-to be highways.The combination makes for an odd one because all the laws that govern bikes (and pedestrians) are found in the same Title (Title 39) as the laws around cars and roads, even though bikes are not cars since Title 39 deals with roads. What does all this mean for cyclists? Well, there are laws around where bikes can be ridden and then there are gaps. A notable gap is sidewalks. Horses and cars are considered vehicles and so they aren’t allowed on sidewalks. Bikes are not vehicles, so they are allowed on sidewalks, unless local law prohibits it or states otherwise.

1. Here is a link to a formal study on the effect of bicycle helmet legislation on bicycling fatalities. Consumer Product Safety Commission staffer Greg Rodgers has published a study concluding that the presence of a State law increases helmet use by 18.4 per cent. New York State reported that since it introduced its first helmet law in 1989 for passengers under 5, and its second in 1994 for riders under 14, the annual rate of cyclists hospitalized from bicycle-related traumatic brain injuries fell for the under 14 group from 464 in 1990 to 209 in 1995. The rate for cyclists 14 and over for the same years declined less rapidly, from 454 to 382. There is no way to determine exactly what proportion of the improvement was due to helmet laws, since there is no data on improvements to bicycle facility safety, rider education or total miles ridden in those years, and helmet promotion campaigns by Safe Kids Worldwide and others were active in the state. But it is likely that increased helmet...
