someguy, you are looking at an old picture. Ashland terrace was recently widened to 4 (possibly 5) lanes. It's sad that the city decided against adding bicycle lanes to this new construction, even though it claims to be a bicycle friendly city, even employing a full time bicycle coordinator. http://www.bikechattanooga.org/OutdoorChattanoogaNamesBicycleCoordinator.html
Federaloffense you are incorrrect. Tennessee Code Section 55-8-175 (the "three foot law") was enacted in 2008, hardly "very long ago". It is also kmown as the Jeff Roth and Brian Brown Bicycle Protection Act of 2007.
Hopefuly the driver will get in tune with life while doing time with the Tennessee Department of Corrections.
The following was posted by David yesterday on the Chattanooga Bicycle Club Forum. "No this is not an official Bike2Work event where we are inticed to ride to work by fine food and prizes. This is just ride your bike to work for fun and adventure. Tomorrow promises to be a beautiful day. Its the next day of the rest of your life.
See you on the road." What a tragedy for his family and Chattanooga and her cycling community. David was loved by many and will be missed by all.
