Stopping at intersections Under Illinois law, cyclists are required to make a full stop at all Stop Signs and Red Traffic Lights. While there is a growing movement across the country to legally allow cyclists to treat stops signs as yield signs, Illinois has not yet adopted the Stop as Yield (aka Idaho Stop) for cyclists. Illinois does allow cyclists to treat red traffic lights as stop signs under certain conditions. This applies everywhere across the state, with the exception of Chicago. Under the law, if a cyclist is stopped at a light that fails to change after 2 minutes, the cyclist is then permitted to proceed into the intersection when clear. The cyclists must yield the right of way to any oncoming traffic before entering. #BikeBatavia, #BikeSafety, #ShareTheRoad
