S920A/A3104A – Advocacy Alert

Fellow Cyclist,

S920A/A3104A (ask the “Idaho Stop” bill) allows cyclists to treat a stop sign as a yield sign, and a red light as a stop sign.

S920 is pending before the Senate Committee on Rules.  A3104 passed the Assembly Transportation Committee 22-to-4 and is now before the Committee on Codes.

To help pass this before the Friday deadline, please email:

Subject: “Please pass S920A/A3104A”

Body: “Please pass S920A/A3104A to make biking safer and easier in New York.”

For further info, here’s links to the S920A and A3104A legislation, a spanish translation of this page (via Strava) and the IS Wikipedia page and videos of how it works.  Also see talking points and academic studies.
