    Here an update on one of the bike bills still alive in Maryland's General Assembly

    From 2014 Bike Maryland Legislative Agenda (http://bikemd.org/page.php?id=439)

    Bicycle Duty Bill - House Bill 52 / Senate Bill 808

    Sponsored by Delegate Carr and Senator Raskin and promoted by the Washington Area Bicycle Association, as well as, Bike Maryland. This bill clarifies that the duties of motorists are those defined by law, and protects those cyclists riding lawfully from the imposition of additional, hypothetical duties.

    View House Bicycle Duty bill here and Senate Bill Here.  Awaiting vote.
