    Gov. Quinn Signs Two Bike Bills 

    1) League of Illinois Bicyclist’s bill creating permanent Share the Road license plates for Illinois.  Plate income would sustainably fund our statewide education campaigns for both motorists and bicyclists.  The plate design itself delivers the message, with a Share the Road sign and the phrase ”Same Rights, Same Rules”.

    2) Sen. Silverstein’s bill establishing penalties for motorists driving recklessly and unnecessarily close to, toward, or near a bicyclist.  Depending on whether serious injuries result, this will be either a Class A misdemeanor or Class 4 felony.

    Details are here.
