Traffic Violations: Diversion Programs - California Bicycle Coalition

Bicycle Education Diversion Programs

by / February 15, 2016

In 2015, we sponsored AB 902, to allow reduced fines for ticketed adult bicyclists who take a bicycle education class. The bill, authored by Assemblymembers Chiu and Bloom, was signed into law in September 2015. The new law makes riding bikes more affordable, and will encourage riding by boosting people’s confidence and skills. AB 902 went into effect on January 1, 2016, and it’s now up to our local partners and local advocacy groups to ensure that police departments adopt diversion programs in your city.
