Three Foot Cushion For Bicycles Proposed by California Senate

Posted on August 21, 2012

Senate Bill 1464 is on its way to the California Assembly, where it will soon be up for a vote.  If passed into law, the bill would require drivers in the state to give people on bicycles a three foot cushion when they attempt to pass such commuters on the road.  The law would encompass any time such a situation occurs on a two lane highway where the conveyances are traveling in the same direction.  Violators would be slapped with a $220 citation.  Not everyone is enthused; the governor squashed a similar bill in 2011.
