THE BICYCLE BILL

[Welland Tribune, 23 April 1897]

This is the Ontario bicycle bill:

(a) In case a person travelling or being upon a highway in charge of a vehicle meets a person travelling upon a bicycle or tricycle he shall, where practicable, allow the person travelling upon a bicycle or tricycle sufficient room on the travelled portion of the highway to pass to the right.

(b) In case a person travelling upon a highway on a bicycle or tricycle overtakes any vehicle or horseman travelling at less speed or a person on foot, the former shall give an audible warning of his approach before attempting to pass.

© In case a bicyclist is overtaken by a vehicle or horseman going faster, the former shall quietly turn out to the right, and the latter to the left, far enough to avoid a collision in passing.
