STARRS invites you to our next meeting on Tuesday, March 2nd at 7pm to hear our guest speaker, Robin Stallings of Bike Texas. Robin will be speaking about legislative issues related to bicycle and pedestrian safety including “Safe Passing”. The meeting has been moved to the Hilton Garden Inn, 6717 SPID, 78412 located between Airline and Nile, south of the Century 16 theatres.
The cycling community is urged to attend to hear Robin speak on the safe passing bill. As most cyclists know, bill SB488 (the safe passing bill) was vetoed by Governor Rick Perry in June 2009. This bill would have made Texas roads safer by requiring motorists to give three feet clearance when passing a cyclist or other vulnerable road user.
Robin Stallings is the executive director of the Texas Bicycle Coalition or Bike Texas.
