LOOK AT WHAT’S COMING TO A DMV NEAR YOU!
The new Nevada Bicycle and Pedestrian Plate “Share the Road” special license plate (noted on attached card) is coming live on December 1, 2014! This special license plate is available to anyone and helps fund the NBPAB (Nevada Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board) grant fund.
The extra fee paid to DMV when you go in is $61 the first time and $30 each year thereafter. This money goes to the NBPAB for a grant program on Bicycle and Pedestrian projects. Personalized plates are also available up to 5 letters for extra fees. Note you can turn in your old plates to DMV at any time, not just at renewal. DMV will prorate the amount.
HELP US MEET THE GOAL!
The “Share the Road” plate needs to sell 1,000 plates the first year and maintain above 1,000 active plates annually thereafter to continue on. If the plate happens (unfortunately) to fall below the 1,000 level – no new plates can then be added but the existing plates can still generate money.
Visit any DMV office near you any time after December 1st to pick up the special plate.

It saddens me to report that a bicyclist and BLV member (mregalado89) was struck and killed by a hit and run driver in Henderson on Saturday. Mario rode with BLV on a few night rides. He was also a member of the Cox Communications Cycling Team. My heart goes out to his friends and family at this difficult time.
Mario was riding his bike on Eastern Avenue, near Evansville Ave around 2pm on Saturday. He was struck from behind by a vehicle switching lanes. The family is asking for help in locating the driver. Please view the Channel 13’s Action News video for more information about the incident and how you can help:

Please be safe out there everyone. We’ve had a string of accidents over the weekend. One of them taking Mario’s life. Another accident on Sunday took another bicyclist’s life, Star Laine Walters. I didn’t know Star personally, but it’s still tragic all the same.
Rest in Peace Mario and Star.
