RESOLVED, That Ordinance No. ORD-10-01 be published by the following summary:
Ordinance No. ORD-10-01 repeals sections of Chapter 127 (Bicyclists) which address the operation of bicycles and bicycle equipment requirements but which are duplicative of provisions that are contained in Chapter 126 (Traffic) and the Michigan vehicle code; the ordinance also repeals the requirement to use bicycle paths; the ordinance also amends Chapter 126 by technically repealing a section applicable to mopeds and motorcycles that is duplicative of provisions in the Michigan vehicle code, and also by adding a section on bicycle lanes and paths and by clarifying the rights and responsibilities of pedestrians crossing streets.
