Do cyclists have to signal when stopping or slowing down? Yes, they do!
Florida law requires cyclists to use a hand signal when stopping or slowing down. Check out the following video to learn more!
The full transcript is below.
Under Florida Statute Section 316.157(1)(c), “(1) All signals herein required to be given by hand and arm shall be given from the left side of the vehicle in the following manner and such signals shall indicate as follows: (c) Stop or decrease speed – hand and arm extended downward.”
Indeed, cyclists must use this left hand signal when stopping or slowing down.
