Changed Bike Laws

We can ride 2X2!!

SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Traffic regulation; bicycles; report. Requires the driver of a motor vehicle to change lanes when overtaking a bicycle or certain other vehicles when the lane of travel is not wide enough for the overtaking motor vehicle to pass at least three feet to the left of the overtaken vehicle. The bill also removes the limitations on riding bicycles and certain other vehicles two abreast. The Department of State Police is directed to convene a work group to review issues related to allowing bicyclists to treat stop signs as yield signs, and to report any recommendations to the chairmen of the House and Senate Committees on Transportation.
