On November 6, city bike manufacturer Linus Bike responds to an article published by Kera News regarding the recent enforcement of new rules for bicycle lanes in Dallas, Texas.
According to the author, BJ Austin, “The Dallas City Council is ready to spell out the rules of the road for the city’s new bike lanes. One of the shared lanes is on Main Street downtown.”
In the article Austin goes on to describe some of these new rules, stating, “The bicyclist can use the entire lane. Unless obstructed or prevented in some way, the car must use an adjacent lane to pass the bicyclist – or ‘vulnerable road user’ as the city ordinance calls it. The driver cannot just squeeze by the cyclist in the marked lane.” The article reports that failure of automobile drivers to follow this rule, as well as ordinances that include prohibiting the throwing of objects at cyclists, can result in fines.
China Reevers, a representative of city bike manufacturer Linus Bike, applauds the article by explaining, “We think it’s wonderful that the city of Dallas is instating rules to ensure the safety of cyclists. While any new set of rules will take some getting used to, the emergence of bicycle culture across the country requires an adaptation of rules to keep everyone safe. Bicycling is great for the environment and for individual health, so we believe it is important to also focus on safety.”
