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.
