Perhaps more interesting to American bike commuters: Additionally, the law would penalize cyclists for inapproprate or excessive bell ringing.
The report filed on Thursday suggested banning cyclists from pedaling while: using a mobile phone; listening to music with headphones on; and randomly ringing the bell to avoid trouble with others.
I’m no acoustics engineer, but I’d guess a very strange set of circumstances must accrue to create a situation where random bicycle bell-ringing rises to the level of a social problem.
