With more and more people riding bikes as an eco-friendly form of transportation, the bike lane laws in Houston can seem confusing. In some areas, bikes can be prohibited on various roadways by traffic engineers. In addition, the traffic engineers can decide at any time to prohibit bike riding on roadways simply by putting up new signage.
In other areas, like business districts, bikes cannot be ridden on sidewalks. This can further complicate issues for those who want to ride bikes when the roadways in the same area prohibit bike riding.
