New York Senate Bill 920 – Relates to the operation of bicycles at stop signs
Relates to the operation of bicycles at stop signs and traffic-control signalsFull Bill Text
This bill was introduced by a Democrat senator on January 6, 2021. It has been assigned to the Senate Transportation Committee.
The special provisions SB 920 would grant bicyclists include being able to proceed through a stop sign or steady red signal with caution only after yielding the right-of-way to all other traffic. The NMA supports giving bicyclists this ability with the stated requirement that the bicyclist yield as necessary and take full responsibility for the action of proceeding through a traffic control device when not having the right-of-way.
