this happened in Florida. A mandatory bike lane law was blitzkrieged through the legislature, and on the governors desk which he signed before cycling advocacy could effectively rally against it. MBL in florida now.
Some eloquent Missouri cyclists need to get on that pronto. I was able to help successfully defeat proposed mandatory shoulder and bike lane laws in Washington state by writing solid rejections of the proposals to all the sponsors of the bills, bike advocates and rallied local outrage among other cyclists. It worked in Washington state, the bill got dropped.
