The KS Senate Transportation Committee will be meeting THIS Tuesday, Jan 30th to discuss proposed SB 274 which will expand the current distracted driving law to include ANY distracted action. It also allows for a penalty to be given without a collision.
Bike Walk Wichita will be providing testimony in support of this bill. Please voice your input!
Talking Point (please add your story): Negligent driving is bad for all road users. Everyone is vulnerable at this point, but as a person who rides a bicycle, it’s particularly dangerous when those entrusted with the responsibility to drive a car aren’t focused on driving.
