On Tuesday, November 13th, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to direct County staff to study Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition's proposed "Vulnerable User Protection Ordinance." This is a great first step toward reducing harassment of people riding bikes or walking, to creating greater accountability for those who do harass vulnerable users, and to increasing access to justice and relief by those who are harrassed.
If you appreciate the Supervisors' vote, please write to them and let them know! Board Chair Supervisor Shirlee Zane's deserves special recognition for bringing the ordinance to the agenda.
