Joe Pelle is 1. Wrong and obviously has no real idea of what happens outside of his office, and 2. hopefully will not be re-elected in such a beautiful and mostly cycling friendly county.
Oops forgot one other thing, Pelle states that "...the law would make cyclists virtually immune to prosecution." This is a call he can't make really, he's just blowing more hot air. If he would bother to make sure that Deputies are knowledgeable in the law, they can then make good decisions in writing a summons if necessary. The DA is the one that has to worry about any prosecutorial discretion in all cases. One other thing too, in all honesty it's about time we started seeing some laws like this, I know that in some countries any accident between a car and a cyclist results in the driver of the vehicle automatically being ticketed. The driver then has to show that the cyclist was at fault.
I like bikes.
