Bill would require permit to use bike lanes

Rep. Duane Quam has introduced legislation that would require cyclist to take safety training courses and get a permit to use bike lanes on roads.

Brian Edwards of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

“Let’s do it when we have the time to give due diligence and have full input and discussion on it,” Quam said. “There are times when something tragic happens and that is the impetus to ‘Now we have to do something quickly’ and you spend the next year fixing the unintended consequences.”

After Quam’s idea surfaced Thursday, it drew a quick backlash on social media, with many Twitter users calling it pointless overregulation.
