Information for Law Enforcement from the IPMBA.

The International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA) is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting the use of bikes for public safety, providing resources and networking opportunities, and offering the best, most complete training for public safety cyclists.

Bicycle riders are usually the focus when police think of enforcing bicycle laws. We've all seen riders running red lights, riding on the sidewalk, or riding at night without lights and wanted them to be stopped and ticketed! However, many bicycle crashes are caused by the bad behavior of motorists, and drivers may not realize the impact of riding too close to a cyclist or speeding past a rider just to cut in front of them and make a right turn. Good law enforcement strategies will target both cyclist and motorist and will focus on behaviors that cause the greatest fear or danger.
