Having lived in Idaho for the last thirty years, I have serious doubts that this will get any further. I oppose it because it is discriminatory.
There is also a proposal by the City of Boise's Bicycle Safety Reponse Team (commissioned by Mayor Bieter as a result of the three recent tragic cyclist deaths here) to reduce bicycle ordinance violations from criminal misdemeanors to simple infractions. I am on the Sounding Board to review this team's proposals and will oppose it because it also is discriminatory. If we cyclists are going to share the road with motorists and improve the mutual respect and caution we show toward each other, then we need to pony up and share the same responsibilties as well. This one will get interesting as the "something-for-nothing" crowd who want to treat cyclists like victims and special needs children chimes in.
