Re: “Illinois Senate Passes a Bill to Ban Throwing Stuff at or Crowding Cyclists

On another note, let me just say this is really just another highly specific law which is redundant to laws already on the books. Throwing things at bicyclists is a crime already. It's called assault if you miss and battery if you don't. Threatening violence is also assault. These are criminal laws, already on the books, which apply equally to cyclists as they do to everyone else. The real question is, why aren't the states' attorneys prosecuting these cases?
