Police officer confronts driver harrassing cyclists

This is from Florida, so the rule may not apply here in WA, but I love this. Props to Cycleicious for the link.

Vulnerable user bill in committee January 26

The 2010 Legislative session is underway and Senate Bill 5838 (the Vulnerable User's bill) has been reintroduced by resolution and referred to the Senate Judicial Committee. The bill is scheduled to be heard by the committee on Tuesday, January 26. I've not been able to find details from the Legislature's web site the time when they will be meeting on Tuesday. It will be in one of the hearing rooms in the John A. Cherberg building on the Capitol Campus in Olympia.

From Dave Hiller's quote in this Publicola post, it looks like there's a chance at a majority yes vote on this bill this time around.

If you want to see this bill advance and possibly get heard on the floor, contact the members of the committee soon!

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are:
Adam Kline
Debbie Regala
Bob McCaslin
Mike Carrell
Randy Gordon
James Hargrove
Jeanne Kohl-Welles
Pam Roach
