Bicycle Safety-3' rule

Effective September 16th, 2014 motorists must leave a space cushion of 3' between their vehicles and bicyclists.

The new law does include an exception to the 3' rule if traffic or roadway conditions make it impossible for motorists to comply. In these cases, the motorists shall pass the bicyclist only when safe to do so.

Please share the road and be watchful of cyclists.
