Can You Believe It - Farewell To The NJ Quick Release Bill

The end of the 2006 - 2007 Legislative Session on January 7 marked the demise of the dreaded Quick Release Bill. It remains to be seen if Rep. Paul "Can You Believe It" Moriarity tries to reintroduce the bill in the 2008 session, but the outcry of bicyclists and the bicycle industry assures that this bill will not be sneak through the Assembly as it did in 2007.

In response to the bill bicycling interests came together in the state as they never have done before, it's now our turn to keep the momentum going. If you live in NJ we urge you to support WALKBIKEjersey. The Bicycle Coalition is sponsoring the fledgling organization and we are accepting tax deductable donations on its behalf. It's important to follow these instructions to make sure your donation goes to WALKBIKEjersey.
