S.1809 – An Act providing for the safety of bicyclists traveling on bicycle paths (2 Responses)

S.1809 – “An Act providing for the safety of bicyclists traveling on bicycle paths” Senator Brownsberger has requested the Joint Committee on Transportation consider a redraft, rather than the bill as originally filed. The redrafted bill would require drivers to yield for bicyclists crossing in crosswalks and other marked facilities used by bicyclists, such as road crossings of bicycle or shared use paths, intersection crossings of bike lanes or other bicycle facilities, and all designated school crossings. These changes would not relieve a bicyclist from the responsibility to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The proposed changes would also require investigation of accidents that occur in such marked facilities.
