The Iowa General Assembly has convened and legislators have begun work on policy to impact the safety of bicyclists.  Bicyclists all over Iowa want safe places to ride and policies that improve traffic safety.  

Bills have been filed (or are expected to be filed) that support safe passing of bicyclists, addressing handsfree cell phone use while driving, enhanced penalties in bicycle crashes, adding distracted driving to the driver education curriculum, and bike and trail funding.  

Contact your legislator now and urge them to include improved safety policies for bicyclists in this legislative session.
