Elvis Presley’s hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi passed Complete Streets earlier this year. Hernando, MS — a southern suburb of Memphis, TN — followed Tupelo’s lead with similar legislation passed earlier this week.
Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour signed SB 3014 — “The John Paul Frerer Bicycle Safety Act” — this week. This “Bicycle Safety Law” includes a “three foot” passing requirement and other important changes to Mississippi law. Mississippi also joins the 41 states with discriminatory “Far to the Right” laws on the books.
