The Providence Bicycle Coalition (PBC) has been hard at work trying to update the state laws when it comes to bicycle safety.

According to their blog,

For the most part, the changes to existing laws are minor edits to bring them more in line with the rest of Title 31 and to update them to match the reality of cycling today.
The big changes are included in the proposed vulnerable roadway user portion of the bill.

The H5074 hearing is now scheduled to be heard tomorrow, April 2nd, at 4pm in room 205 of the State House.

We need to show our strength in numbers to support this legislation, so if you are avaiable PLEASE SHOW UP!

Head over to their site to read the proposed changes.
