ACTION ALERT: Bicycle Safety Bill

Please take a couple minutes to help Ride Illinois pass our state bicycle bill to legalize three common practices and clarify one law.
House Bill 1784 would:

1) Allow motorists to pass bikes in a no-passing zone under certain conditions to improve cyclist safety.

2) Officially legalize bicycling on road shoulders, but not require it.

3) Allow bicyclists to use a rear light without also using a rear reflector.

4) Clarify the bicyclist lane position law, when the lane is too narrow for a car to pass with 3+ feet clearance.
