Action Alert: Protect Vulnerable Road Users Throughout California

Join the California Bicycle Coalition’s social media push to support California’s Vulnerable Road Users Protection Act, AB 2398. Too many Californians have been injured on our streets or are mourning the death of a loved one due to distracted or negligent motorists. Protecting Californians who ride bikes, walk, run, ride horses, scooter, skateboard, and work on our streets is vital to make California a better place to live. AB 2398 will protect all road users by:

• Raising the fine for hitting a Vulnerable Road User

• Assigning a point on the motorist's driver’s license

• Suspending the offender's license for six months

This bill will remind motorists of their obligation to be cautious of each person on our streets. Join CalBike’s Thunderclap to make a huge social media push, and pressure our representatives to support the Vulnerable Road Users Protection Act. Help make our streets more livable, and take California one step closer to reaching CalBike’s goal of tripling the number of people riding bikes by 2020.

The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition is an affiliate of the California Bicycle Coalition. As an affiliate, our members are represented by the California Bicycle Coalition at the State Capitol and with state agencies like Caltrans. Join us as we support California's Vulnerable Road Users Protection Act, AB 2398.
