We need your help! Please tag a friend with a dog! SHARE this status with your friends, and encourage them to sign the petition (http://savenewport.com/bikeban) as well!  Diane Dixon has proposed banning all bicycles, surreys, skateboards, and scooters from the summertime boardwalk, and forcing them into our streets, clogging traffic for miles, causing the same problems we already saw when they closed the boardwalk previously this year.

We need your help to turn this around. Your help in establishing a growing voice for this issue is critical as we move forward. Please share and sign this petition to help STOP THE BIKE BAN.

Councilwoman Diane Dixon (now running for Assembly) proposed banning all bicycles on the boardwalk in her February 6th Townhall.  She has decided to start with electric bikes, first, claiming that they can potentially go faster than the speedlimit, and therefore should be banned.  However,  in an entire one-year span (May 2016 to April 2017), the city issued only 15 tickets for all bicycles combined.

Now, the idea has come to a head: Council will be voting on this NEXT SESSION.

If the issue is speed, then enforce the speed limit, but do not ban bicycles on our boardwalk– regardless of their propulsion system!

Help us STOP THE BIKE BAN, by signing the petition below!

Stop the Bike Bans!

Stop the Bike Bans! Do not ban any additional propulsion methods, simply enforce the existing speed limit!
