Michiganders, It’s The Law: Motorists Must Give Cyclists 3 Feet
Can't wait to see the comments section on THIS one.
Michigan is the 9th most dangerous state for drivers in the entire country, and I've got a funny feeling that this isn't going to make much of a difference, but it's a start.
Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill this week in Lansing called the "Safe Passing Bill" which indicates that motorists MUST give cyclists at least three feet of space when passing on the left. If there are not three feet available, motorists must pass at a safe distance at a safe speed.
Michigan cyclist deaths have increased by 15% in the last few years, and lawmakers are hoping that this will help.
Fat chance. The above is the FYI, now here's my opinion: I know that drivers want to point the finger to everybody else, but cyclists are not the problem. I'm not even going to start in on this rant again - if you actually want to read it, click HERE.
