New Massachusetts Bike Law

All bikers and motorists in MA should be aware of the new Bike Law that was passed finally after many attempts. Spread the word!

Some highlights:

* Motorists can be fined for "dooring" cyclists.
* Motorists can't cut off cyclists after passing.
* Cyclists have full use of the lane and cannot be squeezed to the side by a motorist.
* A motorist is liable if they hit a cyclist riding on the shoulder.

This is all good news, as far as I am concerned.
