Ohio Senate Unanimously Approves House Bill 389

Good news for Ohio cyclists!
Adapted from an e-mail sent by OBF Chair, Chuck Smith:

The Ohio Bicyle Federation‘s House Bill 389 Better Ohio Bicycling Bill was approved by the Ohio Senate Wednesday night by a unanimous 33-0 vote. The bill now goes to Governor Taft (ed: and he’s an OBF member!) for his signature.

HB 389 makes the Ohio Revised Code governing bicycle operation conform more closely with the Uniform Vehicle Code, which has been made more bicyclist friendly over a period of several years. With HB 389, the Ohio Revised Code becomes a good framework for bicycle operation throughout our state.
