Last Tuesday, a group bicycling advocates met with Wisconsin legislators to lobby for better laws to protect bicyclists in the state. Around 200 people showed up to the third annual Bike Summitt held by the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin.
In this lobbying session, the bicycling advocacy group hopes legislators will approve more money for separte bike and pedestrian paths. Additionally, they argue that the state's current traffic laws and penalties are not sufficient to protect the large number of cyclists injured or killed by motorists.
"People who bicycle have been killed on our roadways and there has been for all intents and purposes no penalty assessed. We're looking for reasonable ways to create higher accountability for operators on the roadway," said the executive director of the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin.
