BikeSafetyTwo bills sponsored by State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) were recently signed by the governor.

Bike Safety HB 3367
The new bike safety law clarifies the Illinois Vehicle Code, allowing bicycles to pass motor vehicles on the right and on shoulders. Prior to this law bicycles were lumped in with motorcycles, mopeds and scooters, which are prohibited from passing on the right of other vehicles.

"This simply brings some needed commonsense to our laws," Cullerton said. "We want to encourage commuting by bike and recreational cycling: it is good for the environment, cost effective and safe—this law makes it even safer."

GreenInfrastructureSuburban communities now have clearer guidelines about how new environmental technology can be used to reduce storm runoff, flooding and property damage. A bill promoting green infrastructure sponsored by State Senator Tom Cullerton was signed into law today.

“As suburban infrastructure expands, more and more communities are forced to deal with the impact of flooding caused by storm runoff,” Cullerton said. “This law outlines cities’ unique, environmental opportunities to prevent property damage. They have the green light to go green.”

Cullerton’s legislation clarifies how suburban communities can maintain green infrastructure such as green roofs, rain gardens and other environmental alternatives to the traditional storm sewer network.
