California considering a three-feet buffer law for drivers wanting to pass cyclists
The Three Feet for Safety Act recently passed in the Senate by 31-7 and is awaiting a final vote in the Assembly. AB 1371, sponsored by Assemblyman Steven Bradford (D-Gardena), requires drivers to give cyclists a three-foot buffer zone when travelling in the same direction. Is three feet not enough or too much space to pass cyclists? As a motorist, what’s your experience passing cyclists?
