Cyclists, demand a veto

The Florida Legislature slipped one over on us last week. HB971, a highway safety bill adopted late in the session that just ended, includes language that would require bicyclists to use bike lanes where they exist. Mighk Wilson explains on his post, Call Governor Crist, why this bill is bad for bicyclists. The governor's office number: (850) 488-7146.

Here's the full text of the adopted bill.

Oh god another demented law. And yet another encouragement to car drivers to think they own the roads.

Condolences to you, cyclists of Florida [sigh]. I urge direct actions such as critical-masses in cycle-laned locations. Good luck fighting this rubbish.
