After seeing an increase in car crashes involving bicycles over the past several years, the Plano Bicycle Association is trying to find new ways to decrease those numbers in the future.

According to the Plano Star Courier, a new ordinance is being considered by the city council that would help spread awareness of the growing problems involving bicycle and motor vehicle crashes.

The ordinance would put into place new guidelines regarding the passing of bicycles on the roadway. For instance, the ordinance, if passed, would require vehicles on a two-laned (or more) road to switch lanes in order to pass the bicycle. Additionally, the ordinance would attempt to prevent situations where vehicles would pass a bicyclist and then quickly slow down in an attempt to turn right, often times crashing into the bicyclist.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bicycle accident, motorcycle accident, car accident or truck accident, please call an experienced Plano personal injury attorney that will aggressively fight for your legal rights.
