Bill makes harassing a ped or cyclist illegal

[Update as of 2/23/2012, HB2528 it is not assigned to any committee which I imagine means it is dead]

It’s the start of a new legislative season in Arizona, the 51st Regular session, for those keeping track. (find other bills of interest with the legislation tag)

HB2528 makes it explicitly illegal to harass a pedestrian or bicyclist.

Numerous people have pointed out that the language of the bill is odd in that to be in violation of it, the victim must fall. I’m not sure why it was written that way.
