Chapter 1


From: Every Cyclist’s Guide to Canadian Law


In the Introduction author Christopher Waters examines the new cycling boom taking place in Canada; across the country, bicycles are being increasingly used for more than recreation, becoming as a chief source of mobility for Canadians commuting to work and school. Waters believes that this shift calls for an increasing need for Canadians to better understand safety for all road users. This chapter includes a brief history of cycling and its regulations in Canada, the author’s hopes for what the book can accomplish, a description of the book’s audience, summaries of the book’s chapters, and more.
