Jared and Duane discuss the "Idaho Stop" or the "Delaware Yield" -- traffic laws in some states that allow bicyclists to roll through stop signs and even treat red lights like a stop sign. Be careful -- this is all at your own risk! The Idaho Stop explained (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idaho_stop). Recent changes in Colorado (https://www.koaa.com/homepage-showcase/the-safety-stop-law-local-biking-community-for-it-while-others-share-concerns#:~:text=COLORADO%20SPRINGS%20%E2%80%94%20%E2%80%9CThe%20Safety%20Stop,light%20as%20a%20stop%20sign.). Advocating a law change in Florida (https://floridacyclinglaw.com/blog/florida-cyclists-yield-stop-signs). Nothing in this podcast is legal advice for anyone!
