Bicycle ban petition sparks debate

JOHNSON COUNTY- A petition initiated by a concerned group of neighbors has sparked statewide debate about the use of bicycles on Iowa's roadways.
At least one locally-based organization is pushing back with a petition effort of its own.
Since July 7, an informally-organized group calling themselves the Citizens for Safety Coalition of Iowa (CFSC) has encouraged people to sign a petition seeking to ban bicycles from Iowa's Farm-to-Market roads. Nearly 800 signatures have been obtained through an online petition, with more signatures gathered on paper copies being circulated throughout the state, said CFSC member Dan Jones of Van Meter, Iowa.
