Informational Pamphlets? Flyers?

I know I've seen one around here somewhere. What I'm looking for is a pamphlet that has information about cycling laws. Ideally I'm looking for one to hand out to drivers, but that also provides information for cyclists that don't know the laws. I know the laws change from area to area, and I've found some city specific cycling guids, but I haven't found anything dealing with my city. (Orlando, FL).

If I don't find anything, I might have to make something. If I do I'll definitely post it up for others to use. If I do have to make one, does anyone have any hints as to what I should put in it?

Depends on how big you want to make it. I carry wallet sized cards that are just the state laws that pertain to cyclists (every time I give one out I hear "I didn't know that...").

I also give out larger pamphlets to bike shops and other public places (libraries) that discuss the basics and then point to the Street Smart web site.
