  • Sharing the road

    July 13, 2011
    Motorists aren’t the only ones who get to use the state’s highways … bicyclists and pedestrians have a right to the road, too! Of course, not all roads are open to pedestrians and bicyclists – pedestrians are prohibited from walking along all controlled-access highways. Bicyclists are permitted by ADOT policy to ride on the shoulders of controlled-access highways, except where prohibited. That means freeways and some segments of interstate highways are off-limits to bicyclists.
