New Bill To Protect Bicyclists in California

Recent legislation introduced by Senator Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach) aims to get the ball rolling when it comes to protecting bicyclists from passing motorists.

S.B. 910 is said to be a mere placeholder for what will amount to a three-foot passing law. The bill, which makes no reference to "three feet" is considered among many in the cycling community as a necessary step for preventing collisions, while informing drivers to share the road.

"John Casey, the Chief of Staff for Senator Lowenthal and a bike commuter himself, explains that the Senator's intent is to work with bicycle advocacy groups and law enforcement to make sure that the final draft is a bill that will work for cyclists, and motorists throughout California. Sixteen other states have laws that require motorists to give a three foot berth when passing a cyclist."
