KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Legislation is being discussed at the Kansas City, Missouri, City Hall that could repeal three existing laws concerning jaywalking and bicycles.
The legislation, sponsored by Mayor Quinton Lucas, focuses on three city codes.
Code 70-268 requires wheels and tires to be clean, 70-706 allows the inspection of bicycles relating to traffic and vehicles, and 70-783 relates to “jaywalking.”
According to authors of the proposed bill, the three existing city codes don’t make people safer and expose citizens to unnecessary interactions with law enforcement.
Bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organization, BikeWalkKC supports the bill and said it
