How about the California Bicycle Coalition educate their rider ship on how to co-exist with vehicles in traffic? Teach them how to ride and observe the traffic laws like every other motorist.
Do we really need new laws to remind us to use common sense and follow rules?

Lake Herman Road, as an example, is a nightmare to use and ride on safely, not only because of the narrow roadbed but the unprotected deteriorated non-existent shoulder. A 3 foot distance from a cyclist will put a motorist into the opposing lane. Will the cyclist be required to use a turn out when more than 3 cars accumulate behind their skinny bums?

Insurance companies control the Legislature; helmet laws, cell-phone laws, seat-belt laws ALL are aimed at protecting insurance companies from claims. It's not about OUR safety, it's about THEIR profits.
