CBC Amended Bill To Protect Bicyclists and Pedestrians

Assembly Bill 1951 has been amended to turn injury-causing traffic infractions into misdemeanors, and to increase existing penalties.

This bill, authored by San Francisco Assemblymember Tom Ammiano, is the centerpiece of CBC’s 2010 legislative plans. AB 1591will set the minimum fine at $145 from $70 – $95, and would put jail time on the table for drivers who cause injury.

CBC hopes to add traffic school and community service as penalties so that careless drivers can be rehabilitated instead of merely punished.

Hopefully this will be good for bicyclists and drivers in California. For all of the details, visit this informative blog post.
