Cyclists can treat stop signs as yield signs under new law

Bicyclists can treat a stop sign as a yield sign and roll through the intersection during light traffic, under a new Washington state law that takes effect October 1, 2020.  

Idaho, Delaware, Arkansas and Oregon previously legalized these rolling stops.

Washington Bikes considers it a safety improvement that can reduce crashes at a four-way stop or on a bike lane.
