TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- In some cities in Arizona there are no laws on the books when it comes to riding bicycles on the sidewalk.

In Tempe, riding on the sidewalk is not permitted in certain areas like downtown where there are posted signs, riders must walk their bikes in marked crosswalks and you must ride with the flow of traffic. 

But if you happen to visit Tempe, you will find just about everyone riding on the sidewalk in restricted areas despite the risk of a $100 fine.

individual cities may not have laws against riding a bike on the sidewalk - but the state of AZ does. It is just not enforced.
