I know there was a thread a couple of months ago about a town in Texas closing one of its streets to cycling....and if I remember correctly, it was challenged. I can't seem to find the thread with the search function.
Does anyone know the outcome?
My town just passed a new ordinance that allows the police department to close any streets it deems necessary to bicycles. This is an issue that came up quietly and without discussion. Something the new chief wanted "clarified". I suspect that the chief has a reason for wanting the clarification and the ordinance.
I'm just trying to figure out if I have any rights if I'm banned from any particular streets in my town, which is a very small town and has no speed limit above 35mph. Included with this ordinance is one that requires a bicycle to use a bike path when one is present...an interesting ordinance since there are no bike paths in my town or surrounding country side.
I've also added myself to the town's email list just to keep an eye on future happenings.
