Scottsdale is a unique city in Arizona having several sections of municipal code dedicated to bicycle laws. Some relate just to Pedicabs while others are for bicycles in general.

Every state will have state specific laws that control what you should and shouldn’t do as cyclists. However, each city may further regulate those state laws. Every cyclist should know and understand the Arizona bicycle laws as well as the Scottsdale Arizona bicycle laws.

Below is the text from the Scottsdale Municipal code showing the Scottsdale Arizona biek laws:
