An Act to protect bicyclists in bicycle lanes

H3072: An Act to protect bicyclists in bicycle lanes (filed in the Senate as S1808 by Senator Brownsberger)

This bill protects bicyclists by prohibiting motor vehicle operators from parking in on-street paths or lanes or placing the vehicle where it interferes with the safety and passage of bicyclists. Motorists frequently park in bicycle lanes, forcing bicyclists to merge into traffic. There is currently no applicable state law, and communities are passing local ordinances that will result in inconsistent rules and enforcement unless we take statewide action.
