New Bicycle Safety Legislation for Illinois

This spring, Ride Illinois will be in Springfield to advocate for a new bicycle safety bill we have proposed.  This state bill, HB1784, would make three common practices legal and clarify existing law on another. The proposed amendments will:

  • Allow motorists to pass bicyclists in a no-passing zone under certain conditions
  • Officially legalize bicycling on road shoulders, but not require it
  • Allow bicyclists to use a rear light without also using a rear reflector
  • Clarify the exception to riding on the far right on a narrow road

Read more and write your state representative in support of this bill on the Ride Illinois site here.
