New state bill would make the ‘Idaho Stop’ legal for California cyclists

A new state bill, AB 1103, from Assembly members Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) and Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) would allow cyclists to essentially treat stop signs as yield signs.

Idaho has a similar law in place that has lead to a drop in bike-related injuries in that state, Assembly member Obernolte told the Los Angeles Times.  

The latest California proposal came three years after the enactment of the so-called “three-foot rule,” which requires drivers to be at least 3 feet away when they pass a cyclist.
