Georgia Bicycle Traffic Laws

There is no national traffic law. Each state writes its own laws and regulations. And in many states, like Georgia, local governments may make special provisions that do not specifically conflict with state code, allowing for some regulations that are local regulations only.

In Georgia, as in most states, the bicycle is legally a “vehicle.” This classification means that general vehicular traffic law applies to bicycles and the operation of a bicycle.

The Georgia Bicycle Federation has placed a list of all Georgia bicycle laws on its website, including laws for electric bicycles and special considerations for pedestrian, path, and trail cycling.
