A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
All you Albany drivers who recoiled at the prospect of an Idaho stop law for bicyclists, you can relax. The bill is dead. Or at least it appears that way.
There are good reasons why bicyclists in Albany and elsewhere in Oregon don’t usually come to a complete stop at stop signs when there’s no cross traffic. Now a bill pending in the state Senate would make it legal too.
