Wisconsin has numerous laws in place to ensure that the roads are safe for bikes.  Following laws regarding bicycling can help reduce the number of bike accidents and make the roads safer for bikes and cars alike.

Wisconsin Statute 346.075 provides that cars must give bikes a minimum of three feet of space when they are passing a bike.  Bikes must also allow at least three feet when they are passing another car or a stationary object in the street including parked cars. Wisconsin Statute 346.24 says if a car is stopped to yield right of way to someone on a bike, it is illegal for any approaching car to pass the stopped car.  Finally, according to 346.804, if local law permits riding a bicycle on a sidewalk, they must yield right of way to any pedestrians on the sidewalk.
