Road Rules for Cyclists

Partly due to a request by my office, Representative Phyllis Kahn has introduced a bill, for consideration next year, to substantially improve the traffic laws with regards to bicycles. For cyclists, the proposal would make stop signs function like yield signs, and stop lights function like stop signs. I am very interested in exploring this further and will be working within the City to support this on our legislative agenda. I'd appreciate finding out what you think about this and what possible concerns you think people might raise to it and how we might address these. To read the bill, look here.
