Q: Advice, I reIcently started riding my bike w/helmet only crossing roadways in crosswalks in nj and most cars do not stop
A: There is a law that motor vehicles must stop for pedestrians i crosswalks. Bicyclists are required to walk their bicycles across the street in crosswalks. If you are walking your bicycle and see a car that is not going to stop for you, try to take a picture with your cell phone if possible and report to the local police department. Be safe. Best regards, Howard Lesnik, Esq.
A: Safest way is to wait for the traffic. Sure you may have the right of way if you walk your bike across but its not worth the downside.
