Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety

The Town of Wolfville encourages safe, economical, healthy and fun bicycling by following the rules of the road governed by the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act.

Key points:

  • Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users and are given the right of way at all crosswalks.
  • Pedestrians must walk facing traffic if no sidewalks are provided.
  • Bicyclists must use bicycle lanes where provided.
  • Riding a bicycle on a sidewalk or a cross walk is dangerous and illegal.
  • Bicyclists must dismount and walk a bicycle to cross at a crosswalk.
  • Designed bicycle paths and trails are a safe alternative to public streets.
  • Helmets are required by law for all riders in Nova Scotia.
