Quick Release Bill Hearing on Thursday

It's the bill that never dies. No need to explain it, just type in "quick release" in the search box.

Bicycle Quick Release Bill Hearing A1251 - June 4th, 2009
10:00 AM Committee Room 14, 4th Floor, State House Annex, Trenton, NJ

If you can make it I would suggest that you attend and provide testimony asking for a total rewrite of this bill. Read through it and check out lines 40-42.

Bicycle Advocate John Waltz has suggested this change for lines 40-42:
exclude/exempt all adult bikes with wheel diameters 20 inches and larger and specialty adult bikes with wheel diameters 20 inches and smaller.

Oh good gods...

When are they just going to let this nonsense go and waste time on more important things?

I'm so damn sick of this stupidity cropping up every time some politician feels the need to stroke voters and inflate their sense of self-worth.

This is a solution in search of a problem. If you ask for documentation of the accidents including children they can't provide it. There is one California lawyer suing over this and in that case it has to do with WalMart bikes. Moriarty doesn't understand bikes

CHANGES?!?!?!

Why any changes?!?! This bill should be shot down as is and in any form. No changes! Just kill it!

This is a bad bill. There is no reason for it. We need to support biking --this does not.
