JustLaws' Client Advances Landmark Legislation to Safeguard City's Cyclists
Philadelphia, November 15, 2012: Today, City Council’s Committee on Streets and Services is expected to approve amendments to Bill No. 120532 that JustLaws helped draft on behalf of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. The amendments strengthen the bill and ensure greater safety for bicycle riders and better access to the city’s streets.
JustLaws also advised the Bicycle Coalition in its negotiations with the City’s Law Department, leading to a consensus that embraced the Bicycle Coalition’s legislative agenda.
In the words of the Bicycle Coalition: “JustLaws worked closely with us to craft a bill that captured our vision for overhauling Philadelphia’s bicycle laws,” states Sarah Clark Stuart, policy director for the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
