Albuquerque's bike law was about 35-years-old. So, the city council passed a new one, with a few changes.
Drivers now need to give bicyclists five feet of space near bike lanes. When there's not a bike lane, bicyclists need to stay far enough to the right, so vehicles can pass. And bicyclists can't ride a on sidewalks if there's a bike lane nearby.
A person riding a bike without hands could have been cited under the old law. It was considered a trick. Now, bicyclists are allowed to do tricks, but they still have to follow the same rules of the road.
Under the old law, bicycles were required to have license plates to help police track down thieves. That's another thing the city council changed. Bicyclists are no longer required to register their bikes.
Ask me if I give a **** . Somebody gets his Hummer close to my bike gets it in the grille.
as the farmer pushing a wheelbarrow along the tracks said when the freight-train was coming up behind him : "i'll fool that sob of a traindriver , i'll get out of the way before he catches up with me - that'll spoil his day ! "
