VICTORY! Assembly approves 3-foot passing bill, sends to Governor

VICTORY!

California is one step closer to providing better protection for bicyclists when sharing the road with other vehicles.

California drivers could see signs like this one if Gov. Jerry Brown signs SB 910 into law.

Yesterday afternoon, the California Assembly voted 41 to 20 to approve Senate Bill 910, the 3-foot passing bill co-sponsored by the California Bicycle Coalition and the City of Los Angeles. The bill was approved by the California Senate in June and now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature.

If Brown signs the bill into law, California would be the 19th state to require drivers to give bicyclists at least three feet of clearance when passing them from behind in the same lane.
