Ask VA Legislators to pass The Bicycle Safety Act now!
With the VA General Assembly set to wrap up it’s work this session, there have been a number of bills that are making their way towards the finish line.
WABA has been in collaboration with partners and networks on the ground to monitor and track the progress of these bills, and we want to highlight a key bill that needs your support as it nears its final vote! The Bicycle Safety Act (HB2262 / SB1263) would require drivers to fully change lanes to pass people biking, allow cyclists to ride two abreast in a lane, and permit people on bicycles to treat stop signs as yield signs. The bill is modeled after Delaware law that has proven safety benefits!
