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:
- Make texting while driving a primary offense for all drivers and pass a hand-held device ban.
- Create an E-Bike statutory definition to match national efforts.
- Clean up statutory language with regards to definitions of sidewalks, crosswalks, lane position of bicyclists and other related matters.
5. Support FDOT’s SUNTrail and Complete Streets initiatives, in addition to funding initiatives for natural surface trails.
The 2019 session is just around the corner. FBA is asking cycling advocates around the state to consider hosting a local Town Hall meeting with FBA to go over our initiatives. Complete this form for more details:
