It took a while for the legislative database to catch up, but today it showed that the governor signed a law change affecting bicyclists at stop signs in Albany and elsewhere in Oregon. The change takes effect this coming Jan. 1.
Oregon legislators didn’t give much thought to bicycles this session, and that’s all right. Given lawmakers’ drive to make ever more laws, being ignored by them is not a bad thing. The session in Salem is just about over, and it looks like bikes and their riders are being left pretty much alone.
