Man with no Drivers License Comments on Bike Safety Rules

Twin Falls


By M. Costa

Mike Mcauley is a bike enthusiast. You can find him riding his bike just about anywhere. Mcauley rides around on two–wheels.. rather than four.. but.. sometimes that makes him feel unsafe.
Imagine this, he doesn't have a driver's license, never had one, and never wants to.
"I got on a bike and did it for fun and realized you could get on a bike and go anywhere in the City and get there fast. It's cheap and fun."
Since Mcauley solely rides his bike. he says new rules could help make things safer.
"my only concern is a helmet law. I think it's smart, but I don't think you should be told to do it."
But in order to keep everyone safe Tennille Adams with the Parks and Recreation Commission wants to change up the rules.
"our whole goal of this was safety. We just felt people need to be more safe.. unfortunately, people don't think of the consequences before they act."

Even if the ordinance doesn't pass Adams thinks it opens doors to talk about new rules in the future.
For McAuley despite new laws he wears a helmet every time he straps on his shoes and gets behind the handlebars.
