Real progress in California:
Assembly Bill 2521, authored by Assemblyman Jay La Suer of La Mesa and sponsored by the California Bicycle Coalition, will require all new or replaced traffic-actuated traffic signals to be sensitive to bicycles. Yesterday the bill was unanimously recommended for approval by the Assembly Transportation Committee.
Those of you living in other states or countries may want to cite this as a precedent, if/when it becomes law. Several cities, including the one in which I live, are ahead of state law on this issue; others need the push this law should provide.
