What Are Bicycle Hand Signals?
Not every town or city in Florida is bicycle friendly. Where you live may not include bicycle lanes. However, in Florida, bicycles are considered vehicles (http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0300-0399/0316/Sections/0316.2065.html) and bicyclists have the same right to travel on the road, just like a car. That means a bicyclist MUST abide by the rules of the road, including signaling.
In Florida, bicycle hand signals are written into our laws! (http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0300-0399/0316/Sections/0316.157.html)
NOTE* All hand signals MUST be given on the left side, with one exception, the alternate right turn signal.
Left Turn – Arm extended straight out.
Right Turn – Arm extended upward OR arm extended straight out to the right.
Stop or slow down – arm extended downward.
Recognize these signals, as they could help you avoid a dangerous situation.
