Judge rulls traffic sign unconstitutional.
« on: September 29, 2019, 08:08:38 am »
A judge in Louisville Ky has ruled people are required to obey the law and not the sign. This is a variation of the original speed trap case. This case has been expanded in courts to include all traffic control signs.  That is if some fool places a traffic sign stating bicycles are not allowed on a road we do not have to obey it if it is in conflict with the law. Here is the law                                                                                                                                      (m)Protection of Nonmotorized Transportation Traffic.—
The Secretary shall not approve any project or take any regulatory action under this title that will result in the severance of an existing major route or have significant adverse impact on the safety for nonmotorized transportation traffic and light motorcycles, unless such project or regulatory action provides for a reasonable alternate route or such a route exists. We now are able to bring constitutional charges against police officers who harass us. https://soundcloud.com/stevelehto/no-speed-limits-in-kentucky-ep-6008

Not being able to enforce speed limits just seems foolish to me.  As well as dangerous.

The statute section he is talking about doesn't mean what he thinks it means. If it did, the whole Blackhawk, CO, bike ban would have been a non-issue. Sate and local jurisdictions most certainly have the power to limit/preclude bicycle access and set and enforce speed limits.

I did not expect any one here to study the case. In the case the law said the speed limit on the interstate is 65 mph. Some one posted a sign that said the speed limit is 55 mph. Police think the sign is the law it is not. The sign posted was itself illegal. Title 23 section 109m says pedestrians and bicycles can not be banned from any highway. It also says an interstate can not be built within the right of way of preexisting highway. This is the cause of 99 percent of the problems I have with the police. Some one has posted a sign in conflict with the law. Just to be clear I will show you a photo of an illegal sign. https://flic.kr/p/21P5JEu
