FBA Legislative Platform
The Florida Bicycle Association supports statutory provisions to ensure the safety and rights of bicyclists.
To achieve this goal, we ask Florida’s legislators to consider the following:
- Expand the current Move Over law to include PEOPLE. To learn more about this initiative, Watch or share this video presentation.
- Clean up statutory language with regards to definitions of sidewalks, crosswalks, lane position of bicyclists and other related matters, as discussed and vetted by the Florida Pedestrian and Bicycle Focused Initiative (Alert Today Florida).
- Support FDOT’s SUNTrail and Complete Streets initiatives, in addition to funding initiatives for natural surface trails.
The 2021 Florida legislative regular session has ended and we have plenty to be thankful for, go HERE for details.
Be sure to reach out to your elected officials and their staff during the off session to establish a positive relationship. Ready to meet with your elected official/staff but don’t know what to say? FBA is here to help. Simply request an “Advocacy 101” presentation by completing our online form.
On the federal level, FBA works with the League of American Bicyclists to advocate at the national level and serve as Florida’s state coordinator. Visit our Team Florida page for more information.
