CA passes 3 ft rule for motorists

California has just become the next state to pass legislation making it the law for motorists to give cyclists in the road a minimum of 3 feet when passing. Remember though, 3 feet is very little. Stand up in your family room and put a yard stick up against your shoulder and stick out straight out to the side. Now imagine you’re on a bike and a big ol’ SUV is roaring past you and it hits the end of that yardstick. Yeah. Remember that when you’re the one driving the SUV.

The state released a fun little PSA to let residents know about it!

    • I’d take 4ft over 3ft any day of the week. It’s also an ordinance here in Houston, but I don’t believe it’s state-wide in Texas. It’s also 6ft for large vehicles such as trucks and buses.
