We know it’s hard for you tear yourself away from CARMAGEDDON, but we here at the LADOT Bike Blog would be remiss if we didn’t update you on how things are coming along for the Bicyclist Anti-Harassment Ordinance.
The Bicyclist Anti-Harassment Ordinance, which you can read in its entirety here, has been gaining more and more attention. Outside of the copious amounts of coverage on the LADOT Bike Blog for the ordinance, it has now been also picked up by Streetsblog, various Patches (Venice, Mar Vista, Brentwood), Biking in LA, and elsewhere. The idea is already starting to spread – even before the ordinance gets to council: there are calls for similar legal protections in Washington DC.
Council District 10 Council Member Bill Rosendahl also recently released a video making his case for the Bicyclist Anti-Harassment Ordinance. You can see more at his Youtube channel.
