The battle over a new ordinance to protect bike riders in Dallas continues at Dallas City Hall on Monday. The council is looking at putting an ordinance together that makes it illegal to throw things at cyclists or pass them too closely.
The City of Fort Worth is hoping a little paint will make bicyclists safer in their city. The city is painting bike lanes green. The green-color will highlight areas where vehicle lanes and bike lanes cross.
Fort Worth leaders hope to increase foot and bike traffic by adding bike lanes downtown. It’s part of the Bike Fort Worth plan, and officials hope it will bring more retailers and more jobs to an area of downtown that isn’t as vibrant.
