Austin City Council Votes 6-0 for Safe Passing!

Austin City Council Passing Safe Passing

Congratulations to the City of Austin - on Thursday, October 22, 2009, Austin became the first city in the State of Texas to adopt a Safe Passing ordinance! This means that Safe Passing will now be the law of the land in Austin, TX. Click here to read the ordinance.

Thanks to the Austin City Council, especially Mayor Lee Leffingwell and Councilmembers Mike Martinez and Chris Riley, and city staff for working with BikeTexas to make this a reality.

This is a major step, but it is only the beginning. BikeTexas intends to work hard to duplicate this success in cities and towns all over the state before the next legislative session. If you want to try to pass a Safe Passing law in your community, please contact us!
