Was just curious on some general laws bicyclists must follow...I've seen some posts here on individual ones, but missed any cumulative lists.
One safety issue I'm also curious about is stop signs. If I'm coming up to a busy intersection or one that I cannot see both ways, I'll stop. Safety first. However, there are several crossings in which I have the stop sign, but as I get near, I see no cars coming. Am I the only person here who'll coast through without stopping (taking caution though). It just tries my patience to stop at every sign when it's clear that nobody is on their way through...have to regain that momentum all over again. I actually did this once right in front of a a law officer of some sort...didn't get ticketed. Which makes me wonder how many law enforcement officers actually care. (Unless there is a wreck).
I used to be really bad with signs, putting myself in some very dangerous situations. However, I've learned my lesson (not the hard way, fortunately), and always obey what would be a normal traffic law when other vehicles are present.
Also, do states individualize laws any? I live in Indiana if that's relevant.
