Municipalities in Vermont can have varying traffic laws. Burlington's ordinances, for example, have a few differences from State Statue. They include:
- Prohibition of cycling two abreast on roadways
- Prohibition of cycling on the sidewalks in Burlington's "Inner Fire District" -- basically the downtown area bounded by Pearl Street, Winooski Avenue and Main Street.
Local Motion offers a summary of the rights and responsibilities of bicyclists in Burlington as a pocket-sized summary printed on waterproof paper. To order free copies for distribution to your neighbors, cycling club, school, or workplace, contact Mary Catherine Graziano at
