What is the Protected Bikeways Act?

What is the goal of the Protected Bikeways Act (AB 1193)?


The goal is to encourage the development of protected bike lanes – an area in the street exclusively for bicyclists to ride separated from moving traffic and pedestrians with planters, curbs, a lane of parked cars, posts, to name the most common forms of separation. The California Bicycle Coalition (CalBike) sponsored AB 1193 because our goal, along with California’s local bicycling advocacy organizations, is to triple biking by 2020, and that means redesigning the streets with bikeways that are safe and attractive for everyone, not just those of us who are comfortable riding with fast traffic.
