Statement on CHP Electric Bike Safety and Training Program
SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Tasha Boerner issued the following statement today after the California Highway Patrol established an electric bike safety and training program in compliance with Assembly Bill 1946, which was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom and took effect on January 1, 2023.
“I am excited to see the release of the California Highway Patrol’s e-bike training program. I’m especially grateful for their time and effort spent collaborating with a diverse group of relevant stakeholders. I hope every e-bike rider takes the time to review e-bike safety, emergency maneuver skills, rules of the road, and other laws related to e-bikes.
As our State continues to move towards more sustainable transportation solutions, making it safer for all of those sharing the road is a priority of mine and requires a comprehensive approach. The California Highway Patrol’s promotion and enforcement of safe pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorist behavior, ensures we all share the road safely.”
Assemblymember Tasha Boerner represents the 77th District, which encompasses Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, and the coastal communities of La Jolla south to Downtown San Diego and Coronado.
