You know how sometimes you can go to traffic school instead of having a driving infraction put on your record? Well a proposed new bill suggests that those folks who go through traffic and safety courses be taught about bicycle and pedestrian traffic safety as well.
House Bill 1129, sponsored in part by our own Representative Andy Billig, would require traffic schools conducted in connection with a condition of a deferral, sentence, or penalty for a traffic infraction or a traffic-related criminal offense. This bill goes in front of the House Transportation Committee at 3:30 today. We’ll follow it and let you know if it goes anywhere.
What do you think? Good idea or bad? Why?
