Idaho Stop – S920/A3104

Cycling Advocacy Alert – Help pass the Idaho Stop Law in New York

Fellow Cyclist,

I’m writing to ask your help to pass an “Idaho Stop” bill in the New York Legislature.  This bill is co-sponsored by Senator Rachel May (S920) and Assembly Member Patricia Fahy (A3104).

The Idaho Stop bill would allow cyclists to:

  • Treat a “stop light” as a “stop sign” — come to a complete stop and check for cars and pedestrians before proceeding through an intersection, and
  • Treat a “stop sign“ as a “yield sign” — slow down to check for cars and pedestrians before proceeding through an intersection.

For further explanation, here’s links to videos showing how it works and its implementation across Colorado and the IS bill Overview and Talking Points.

Your emails should include:

Subject: Support for Idaho Stop bill – S920/A3104

Body:  “I support passage of the Idaho Stop bill – S920/A3104 to make biking safer and easier in New York.”


That’s it.  Stay safe out there!
