Bicycle Safety Omnibus Bill Introduced in D.C. Council Today

Today, councilmembers Mary Cheh and Tommy Wells introduced to the D.C. Council the bicycle safety omnibus bill. It makes it easier to ride a bike in D.C. by altering requirements for cyclists (like removing the requirement that all bikes be equipped with a bell) and proposes that drivers face points on their license for bike-related traffic infractions. The bill has yet to be referred to committee, but WABA supports it and the provisions it suggests for cyclists and drivers. Read the full text of the bill below:
