Can I ride my bike over pedestrian crossings?


Answer: When you are on the bicycle you are considered a vehicle so you have to cross the zebra crossing on foot, and you DO NOT need to wear a helmet, because you are in a city, so if you are older than 16 years of age it is a voluntary action.


In the event of a car driver being unable to stop when a bike is crossing in front, if the cyclist is going very fast into the zebra crossing and the driver was not able to see them with enough time to break, in the event of accidents the cyclist will be the guilty.

In some areas there are special cycle lanes, in that case the cyclists do not have to go on foot.
