Full Lane for Safety

1024px-MUTCD_R4-11.svg.pngSafe bicyclists know that riding in the center of a narrow right lane is legal and often the safest place to ride, but motorists and police don’t know this because the law is poorly written.

Too many times, they harass or even cite bicyclists doing this. It’s not fair to the victims of harassment, and it’s unsafe because it causes most people to ride in the dangerous edge of the roadway.

We will clean up the law by clarifying its intent, putting bicyclists’ safety needs first.
