San Antonio City Council

Congratulations to the citizens of the Alamo City, who now have a Safe Passing Ordinance!

On a rainy Thursday, February 4, 2010, San Antonio City Council passed the Safe Passing Ordinance with the same language as SB 488, the Safe Passing Bill. The Safe Passing bill passed overwhelmingly in the 2009 State Legislative Session, but was subsequently vetoed by Governor Perry. Like the statewide bill, this local ordinance lists cyclists as well as pedestrians, motorcyclists, tow truck operators and other vulnerable road users as requiring special consideration when encountered on the roadway by motorists.

One-hundred twenty bright yellow t-shirts with an "I Support BIKE Fort Worth" design by LMRABC member Kyle Carr were purchased by the four organizations and handed out for free. The Fort Worth City Council chamber was filled to standing room only with cyclists in yellow or their respective cycling jerseys. There were over 200 in attendance in support of the plan, with 42 members of the community commuting to the meeting by bicycle.

And in addition to economic benefits, bicycling could potentially generate health benefits as well, up to $319 million a year.
