You’ve heard of the ‘California Stop’? That’s where a vehicle slows at a stop sign, but rolls past without coming to a full stop (it’s not legal in California, btw).
The cycling version is called an ‘Idaho Stop’ (which actually IS legal in Idaho) and it might be coming to Edmonton. Let’s rephrase that – most cyclists do this anyway, and City Council is urging the Province to make it legal, and save some read tape. As Edmonton Mayor said recently “It basically happens all the time any way. It’s kind of like basement suites, you can pretend they don’t exist or you can legalize them and make them safe.”
So far, the Province isn’t interested in any changes. More here.
