    Don't forget the gloves. Might as well require saddles that protect citizen's periniums.

    I'm not a lawyer, but from reading the text, I think your recumbent trike would be exempt. It specifically says "bicycle" and the definition of bicycle in Wyoming law is specific to two wheels....

    We had a state rep that didn't want a 3 foot passing law for that same reason.
  4. This says that it's a primary offense in most...

    This says that it's a primary offense in most states. 33 states have primary offense laws for front seats, 16 have primary for rear.

    State Seat Belt Laws

    The way I'm reading it, there really is no teeth to this bill. A lot of bicyclists would just pay the $25 on the likely rare occasion of being caught.

    I'm fine with ride organizers requiring them,...

    Unfortunately this can be the case. In Ohio, the House voted to increase the hit and run penalty, passed unanimously but it never came up for a vote on the floor of the Senate. Maybe this session.

    I'd think at a minimum the driver should get points.

    I'm wondering about the road test. Around here, a lot of the DMV evaluators couldn't do it, unless they followed behind in a car, taking hands free voice notes.

    Our bikeshare bikes are heavy as well, but it's really not too bad for what they are meant for. Would I want to ride 25 miles on one, or go up steep hills? No. But for getting around downtown, they...

    I look at both as well, to see if I can modulate my speed enough so that when I get to the intersection I don't have to stop, if there aren't too many cars waiting.

    I'm feeling even with the issues Cincinnati has, we're fortunate. We have traffic engineers at each meeting of the cycling advocacy group and they actually ride. I came across one of them on the road...

    Of course riding a MUP isn't illegal, but there are cyclists that don't use them properly. Many of them have inexperienced casual riders and kids. They are not a good place to be riding on your aero...

    To say the cyclist was partially at fault for being there suggests that the driver should get a reduced sentence because there would have been no accident if the cyclist wasn't there.

    Steve Magas (Ohio Bike Lawyer) helped Pro Bono, but isn't licensed in KY. He is not involved now. But even with an attorney working pro bono, there can be significant costs.

    Sometimes it's also not just in terms of injury, or dangerous riding, it's just in terms of the activities you want to do. Our local bike club requires a helmet for all group rides as an example. If...

    Not a highway, but I've seen a guy on his skateboard on one of the major roads in my neighborhood. He also failed to complete a turn and wiped out in the road. Luckily there wasn't a car too close....

    Based on my definition. I have to make the call as to whether there is something causing me to not be on the far right side. I rarely use a shoulder. And I won't just take a lane due to debris. Some...

    I ride FRAP, but there are times where the only real option is to take a lane. I'm not saying she's doing everything right here, but if those in Kentucky lose that right, or the few times I ride...

    A few items. Even though at least one attorney was working Pro Bono or on a contingency, I believe that they normally don't front expenses. They may not take a fee for their time, but it doesn't mean...

    On the rail trail near me, Little Miami, there are certain areas that get crowded, but it thins out pretty quickly. What I hate most are rollerbladers that go two abreast and don't move to single...

    In Ohio, legally we're not allowed to proceed at any point if a sensor doesn't get tripped. This would change if they ever pass HB 145 which just requires waiting a "reasonable" time, and adds a...

    In Cincinnati, I know of at least two traffic engineers that ride. We came across one on his bike on a group ride, have seen him in other situations. The other is a woman.

    It can actually be more complex. In Cincinnati, it's legal for a minor 14 or under to ride on the sidewalk, but not where a building directly abuts the sidewalk. So the local business district is...

    We got hit with a Minor Misdemeanor for this, if we'd had a front plate we probably wouldn't have been stopped. It's not unusual to see cars without front plates around here, as neither Indiana nor...

    The problem is that in many parts of the country, the jails are so overcrowded anyway, many are out on the same night. We got pulled over because a cop felt that our bike rack obstructed our plate...
