Tell the Governor to Protect Bicyclists
Senate Bill 1464 has made it through the California State Legislature... now all we need is for Governor Brown to sign the bill by September 30th!
Senate Bill 1464 will require drivers to give bicyclists at least three feet of clearance when overtaking them from behind in the same lane.
By giving drivers a clear, measurable, objective standard for how to pass bicyclists safely, SB 1464 will help prevent the leading cause of bicyclist fatalities. And by making our roads safer, SB 1464 will help more would-be bicyclists confidently choose to ride a bike as everyday transportation.
Twenty-one other states already have laws that specify a minimum passing distance for drivers passing bicyclists.
Tell Governor Brown why California should be the next state to enact this common-sense reform and let's make this bill law!
SB 1464 is cosponsored by the California Bicycle Coalition and the City of Los Angeles.
