1895 Laws For 'Wheelmen'

Thanks to Charles Hansen for sending me this 1895 article from the Spokane Chronicle on laws for 'wheelmen,' also known as bicyclists.  It was kind of ironic to me that, over 100 years later, there are still issues between bicyclists and vehicle drivers, although of a different kind. It's good to know though that the item about giving the right of way to the vehicle is no longer the case.
