Nevada Cyclists and Friends,

You can make a difference with an e-mail or letter! A brief note is all that is required.

On Tuesday, the Vulnerable Highway User Law was considered in the Assembly Transportation Committee. It is AB 328. This law adds a new point to the NRS 484 reckless driving section, to state that anyone who violates due care for pedestrians, pedestrians in a crosswalk, speed violations in school zones, negligent manslaughter, or strikes a vulnerable highway user (bike or pedestrian) with a car can be cited for reckless driving and face enhanced penalties. Three cyclists and one pedestrian advocate testified in support of the bill, there was no opposition.

The bill must pass out of committee and pass the full Assembly by April 15-next Friday.

Please send this out to everyone you know and contact Assembly members and ask them to support AB 328. This bill makes the streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists.You can also fax letters of support to the fax number below. Please send your support today! This bill must pass out of committee or it will die.
