Here's what we achieved together this past year:

  • We changed Vermont's vulnerable user passing law to¬†require that drivers give at least four feet of clearance when passing people walking, biking, and rolling
  • We fixed Vermont's definition of a "pedestrian" so that it includes people using manual wheelchairs and other assistive devices, which ensures that these users are extended the same legal right-of-way as other pedestrians
  • We removed Vermont's requirement that people use sidewalks when present, recognizing that sidewalks are often impassable for people using walkers and wheelchairs
  • We protected Vermont's e-bike incentive program from being eliminated
