So SB-910 (“Safe Passing Bill”) was given a public hearing in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
And of course the AAA was there to oppose it.
I say “of course” because it goes without saying that anytime a bicycle or pedestrian bill is considered, the AAA will oppose it. It brings to mind Assembly Bill 1408, which the AAA also opposed back in 2004. That bill clarified bicyclists’ right not to have to ride in Door Zones.
And what’s baffling is that all AAA members are pedestrians, and quite a number ride bicycles too. I (kind of) understand efforts by the AAA to divert bike/ped monies to highways — but why oppose rules already in the DMV handbook?
