Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with any bicyclist, pedestrian or domestic animal upon any roadway… 10 Tips for Sharing the Road:  10 Tips for Sharing the Road 1. The definition of “Traffic” in New York State’s Vehicle and Traffic Law begins with the words “Pedestrians” and “Bicyclists.” 2. The New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law requires motorists to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. 3. Motorists must yield to other traffic before turning movements, especially when making a right turn on red.  4. Where sidewalks are not provided pedestrians should walk on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic. 5. Bicyclists and In-Line skaters have the legal right to use all roads in New York State, unless specifically prohibited. 6. Bicyclists legally are required to ride on the right side of the road and in the same direction as motorized traffic. 7. When possible, please give 5 feet of clearance when you pass a bicyclist. 8. Strong Yellow-Green Fluorescent is replacing yellow as the color for pedestrian, bicyclist and school safety signs.   9. The law says that “every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with any bicyclist, pedestrian or domestic animal upon any roadway.”   10. Remember that we are all motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians at different times of the day and at different times in our lives. We all share the same road.
