Keeping the silent sports community informed and self propelled.
An Illinois law that took effect earlier this year allows non-Chicago bicyclists to proceed through red lights. The law is already undergoing some tweaking because of some vague language, according to mybikeadvocate.com.
In a previous piece, Chicago bicycle accident attorney Brendan Kevenides expressed support for the legislation, writing, "It would be reasonable, in my opinion, for bicyclists throughout the state to be permitted to treat traffic signs and signals as yield signs. That is how most people ride anyway. If the coast is clear, after slowing to a stop or near stop, bicyclists should be permitted to proceed."
