A proposed Oregon bill would allow bicyclists to roll through stop signs only in residential neighborhoods and is sponsored by a freshman legislator, Rep. Jules Bailey, D-Portland.  Advocates argue that allowing bicyclists to make rolling stops makes it easier to maintain momentum, encouraging cycling in general and would take cyclists away from busy but dangerous arterial streets with few stops and into neighborhoods that have little traffic and many stops. 

The measure is modeled after a similar law in Idaho that allows bicyclists to treat stop signs like yield signs.  This measure is drawing fire in the Oregon legislature for a law that may be lethal for bicyclists.

If bicyclists are allowed to roll through a stop sign at an intersection, then how are operators of motor vehicles supposed to react to them?

At the Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC, we can let you know whether you have a case if you are injured in a bicycle vs. car accident.  The rules of the road are not always so clear cut and easy to understand when it comes to bicyclists on the roadway.  So, call us at 1-800-636-3676 before you talk to anyone from the insurance company.  It may make or break your case.
