NEW BICYCLE LAW

NEW BICYCLE LAW REQUIRES MOTORISTS TO GIVE THREE FEET FOR SAFETY

According to the new law, a driver must allow three feet of distance when overtaking or passing a bicyclist. If three feet is not available, a driver must then slow to a safe speed and pass when no danger is present

"As important as it is for vehicles to be mindful of our bicyclists, those who ride must exercise safe practices and ride smart," added Commissioner Farrow. "With both drivers and bicyclists doing their part, we can help reduce the number of tragedies involving bicyclists."

The “Three-Feet-for-Safety-Act” will become effective on September 16, 2014.
