S.F. No. 415 - Specifying Allowable Motor Vehicle Operation in Bicycle Lane
 
Author: Senator Kari Dziedzic
 
Prepared By: Bonnie Berezovsky, Senate Counsel (651/296-9191)
Krista Boyd, Senate Fiscal Analyst (651/296-7681)

Section 1 provides that a motor vehicle operator may not pass another vehicle on the right by moving into a bicycle lane.

Section 2 allows an operator of a motor vehicle to drive in a bicycle lane to perform parking maneuvers.

Section 3 specifies legal driving behavior when a motor vehicle operator is required to cross a bicycle lane to make a turn.  A turn signal must precede the movement into the bicycle lane, and the driver can turn only after it is safe, yielding the right-of-way to approaching bicycles.
