Other States Are Now Adopting the ‘Idaho Stop’ Bike Law

Idaho is the only state in the country with this peculiar bike law.

Well, it was. Until now.

We told you a few weeks ago about Idaho’s ‘Idaho Stop’ law, in which a bicyclist abides by these rules:

The Idaho stop law allows a bicyclist to proceed through a stop sign as if it were a yield sign, and to stop at a red light and then clear that visually and proceed on that red light.

Agree or disagree, that’s the law in Idaho, dating all the way back to 1982. The biggest problem those against the law have is that Idaho is the only state in the country to have such a law. If 49 other states have different laws for bicyclists, doesn’t that put ours under the microscope? Maybe less so now.

On October 5th, Delaware signed into law that bicyclists there now treat stop signs like yield signs. It’s part of what’s being called the Bicycle Friendly Delaware Act, and while not quite as expansive as the ‘Idaho Stop,’ it’s a step toward making Idaho’s ruling the norm.

You can learn more about exactly what the ‘Idaho Stop’ law is here.
