Requiring cyclists to wear face shields over their face masks while biking could have negative impacts on people’s safety and mobility during the pandemic.

As stated by civil group Move As One Coalition, requiring cyclists to wear face shields may expose them to increased risk of road injuries and deaths, as they may be hit by speeding motor vehicles and suffer serious injuries.

“It is dangerous for people who are cycling to wear a face shield over a face mask. The face shield distorts the wearer’s vision; fogs up due to breath, the rain or humidity; and creates blind spots,” the group said in a statement.

This petition is only applicable to an exemption from wearing the face shield only WHILE RIDING. Upon alighting and most especially when entering an establishment, walking alongside pedestrians, and general interactions with other people, rider complies with the minimum requirement to wear face mask and face shield.
