Let's get this started: The "Idaho Stop" for Burlington and Vermont!

With more and more reports on cyclists in Burlington receiving $200+ penalties for 'rolling' through a stop sign (without traffic or late at night with no one else around) it seems necessary to start the discussion on the so-called "Idaho Stop for cyclists" as a law. 
Check out the video animation below created by Portlander Spencer Boomhower (you might remember him from an article he wrote for BikePortland). When he's not thinking or writing about bikes, Spencer is a freelance computer graphics artist. He masterfully put those skills to use in a video he titled, Bicycles, Rolling Stops, and the Idaho Stop.
Watch it below:
Spencer says he hopes the video makes its way to legislators in Salem who are still pondering the Idaho Stop Law.
