]]]] LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO ]]]] Fifty-eighth Legislature First Regular Session - 2005 IN THE SENATE SENATE BILL NO. 1011 BY BROADSWORD 1 AN ACT 2 RELATING TO PEDESTRIANS AND BICYCLES; AMENDING SECTION 49-714, IDAHO CODE, TO 3 PROVIDE A CORRECT CODE REFERENCE RELATING TO RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF PERSONS 4 OPERATING HUMAN-POWERED VEHICLES OR RIDING BICYCLES. 5 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho: 6 SECTION 1. That Section 49-714, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 7 amended to read as follows: 8 49-714. TRAFFIC LAWS APPLY TO PERSONS ON BICYCLES AND OTHER HUMAN-POWERED 9 VEHICLES -- DUE CARE. (1) Every person operating a vehicle propelled by human 10 power or riding a bicycle shall have all of the rights and all of the duties 11 applicable to the driver of any other vehicle under the provisions of chapters 12 6 and 78 of this title, except as otherwise provided in this chapter and 13 except as to those provisions which by their nature can have no application. 14 (2) Every operator or rider of a bicycle or human-powered vehicle shall 15 exercise due care.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 14616 This amendment corrects the reference to Chapter 8, Signs, Signals, and Markings. All bicyclists must also obey these codes. Currently, it would appear that bicyclists do not have to obey these codes. Chapter 7 is referred to in 49-714 by the words "except as otherwise provided in this chapter." FISCAL IMPACT There will be no fiscal impact to the State General Funds or local government. Contact Name: Senator Joyce Broadsword Phone: 208-332-1336 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/FISCAL NOTE S 1011
