Bravo Boise

To go along with the State of Idaho's enlightened approach to cycling safety, the city of Boise has enacted a new ordinance designed to maximize the safety of motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. According to this report at BikeRadar.com:  
The new ordinance states that drivers must yield to cyclists at intersections, provide a minimum distance of three feet when passing a cyclist and cannot cut bicycles off when turning. Furthermore, cyclists cannot ride recklessly or in crowded pedestrian areas and must give a warning before passing a pedestrian on the sidewalk. Lastly, motorists cannot intentionally intimidate or harass cyclists.
