Move Over Act

If the pass this kind of law how about a "Don't #[email protected]% With Cyclists Act"? I have feeling that far, far more cyclists are killed and injured per year than emergency workers.

It wouldent work very well towards cyclists because It would require them to change lanes. That would probbly cause more of an issue than passing a little too close.

I think it would benifit the general public more if they saw cyclists as regluar vehicles. Making them substantially slow down and move over will only make us look more like a inconvience than we really are.

my 2 cents.
