Assemblyman Obernolte introduces bill to increase safety for bicyclists
Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) recently introduced a bill that would allow bicyclists to yield at stop signs when safe to do so.
AB 1103 allows bicyclists to slow as they approach a stop sign, assess the safety of proceeding—as they would at a yield sign—and continue with caution without making a full and complete stop. Studies show conclusively that stopping and starting unnecessarily causes safety hazards for bicyclists since lost momentum results in more time spent in each intersection and greater potential for collision with vehicles. The State of Idaho passed a similar law in 1982 which resulted in a significant drop in collisions involving bicycles across the state.
“This common sense bicycle law will increase safety by minimizing the potential for collision between cars and bicycles,” said Assemblyman Obernolte.
AB 1103 will be in print for 30 days before being referred to committee.
Assemblyman Jay Obernolte represents the 33rd Assembly District in San Bernardino.
