DENVER (CBS4)– A bill introduced in the state Senate would allow bicyclists to run stop signs and red lights.
The bill calls for cyclists to “pass through a roadway intersection without stopping at a stop sign” if the rider slows down and “yields to vehicles and pedestrians.”
The bill also states that a similar action can happen at a red light when the cyclist stops first and then yields to traffic and pedestrians.
That includes going through an intersection, making a left-hand turn or right-hand turn.
The bill is sponsored by Sen. Andy Kerr, a Democrat representing Lakewood.
