Success! Thanks to your collective efforts, we were able to get S2894 posted for a vote by the Senate Budget Committee!
The committee scheduled a new session for Dec 14th.
Improve Driver Education in New Jersey with SB 2894!
Let the Senate Budget Committee know that now is the time to vote on making our roads safer for bike riders and pedestrians in New Jersey! Click here to send a message to the committee.
In a state that typically ranks near the top in bike rider and pedestrian road fatalities, education of new drivers is critical to safer roads. But our legislators continue to ignore the fact that almost a third of those killed on our roads in 2016 were either walking or riding a bicycle. Our legislators’ track record in the current legislative session for doing anything for vulnerable road users is abysmal. But here is a last chance for them!
The League of American Bicyclists supports this bill also.
