If you’re riding your bike in the middle of central campus, pay attention to pedestrians or you could face a $25 fine.

As part of the Bike Walk Zone, bicyclists are expected to walk their bikes when pedestrians are present in heavily trafficked areas, according to Transportation Services. Parts highlighted in blue in the map below mark where the zone begins and ends. You'll also find signs posted in the areas.

Bicyclists are held to the same standards as drivers of other moving vehicles. Failure to comply with standard rules and regulations will result in additional citations. So, make sure to ride slowly anywhere on campus and be ready to yield to pedestrians. The UWPD is targeting these areas to ensure compliance and raise awareness of the requirement.
