One of my buddies, Sledge Hanner (yes, he goes by that name – a pilot thing) is currently living in Kansas. He sent me a note that let me know Kansas has recently passed a couple of bills to help cyclists. The first is a 3-foot passing distance, similar to Colorado.
The second one I found more interesting and I haven’t seen it before – the “Dead Red” law. It helps both motorcycles and bicycles that aren’t heavy enough to trigger a stop light change. If the “cycles” stop and the light does not change (I’m not sure how long they’re supposed to wait) then they can proceed when it’s safe and no traffic is coming.
Kudos to Kansas
