Under the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s Highway Traffic Act (HTA) a bicycle is classified as a vehicle.  Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities to obey all traffic laws as other road users.

Crossrides allow cyclists to stay on their bikes while crossing through intersections. They may be located where multi-use trails or cycle tracks cross a road. Crossrides are identified with a line of painted squares on both sides of the crossing, and may also include painted bicycle marks.
