Governor Sanford Signs Bill to Make Cycling Safer


Governor Mark Sanford signed a new Bicycle Safety Bill this morning at Outspokin Bicycles in Columbia, SC.  This new bill will require that motorist allow a "Safe Operating Distance" when passing a cyclist on the roads of SC.  The bill also maintains the current language permitting cyclists to ride two abreast, and would make it "Unlawful to harass, taunt, or maliciously throw and object at or in the direction of any person riding a bicycle".  A big thank you to Governor Mark Sanford, Representative Garry Smith (R-Greenville), PCC President Paul LeFrancois, PCC Director Natalie Cappuccio-Britt, and Outspokin Bicycles Owner Brian Currin (who, by the way, finished 9th in the Assault on Mt. Mitchell this past weekend).  Kudos to everyone for making our commutes and rides just a little bit safer.

Good job Columbia!

Still can't say I'd ride on pavement anywhere but Ft. Jackson, though.

Whose pee-pee did Curran rub to get it signed at Outjokin'?
