Thursday, August 16, 2012

It is illegal to ride or operate a minibike, dirt bike, or All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) on the District’s streets or sidewalks. It is okay to ride bicycles, mopeds, motorized bicycles, Segways, and motorcycles on the street, but not on city sidewalks.

(Non-motorized bicycles and Segways may be ridden on the sidewalk in neighborhoods outside the central business district.)
